Grad Card


This is a card I made for my brother.. He graduated from High School last week. I didn't know what the school colors were, so I went with a simple Black & Grey look. The card needed to be masculine so I keep it pretty simple. I found a sheet of 12x12 for Graduation at my LSS and this very cool tassel.. I believe it's by Jolee's by You. 

My card base is textured Going Grey and I layered it with a piece of textured Going Grey. I cut my patterned paper to size and used the ticket corner punch on the corners. I closed my card with a piece of Black Grosgrain Ribbon. And I attached the tassel just under the knot with some glue dots.. I wanted the ribbon to slide off and on, so the tassel needed to stay in place.

I didn't have any Graduation sets from Stampin' Up! or any other company so I left the front pretty plain and I think it looks great with the background paper and just the tassel. Now onto the inside, that's where the party is!

I used the new "Look Here Bigz XL Die" from Stampin' Up! I ran it through the Big Shot with a piece of Basic Grey and the I ran it through with some of the scraps from the Patterned Paper and I covered some of the arrows with it. I stamped the sentiment from the new set "Teeny Tiny Wishes" which you will see July 1st in the new catalog!

Then I punched it out with the new Modern label punch and layered that on another modern label piece I made using the new Magnetic Movers & Shapers Die set. Both will also be in the new Catty!
