When I was shopping at Michael's last week for another project, I saw the Jolee's graduation embellishments on display. I knew that I wanted to use part of that set on this card.
Since this card is for a young man, I knew that I needed to keep the card less frilly. I also used some of my favorite Congratulations paper from Die Cuts with a View; I love that paper for both graduations and weddings. Finally to keep the embellishment simple (but not too plain), I added a Tim Holtz grungeboard flourish, painted with Adirondack silver paint dauber.
Materials: white cardstock: Georgia Pacific; black cardstock: unknown (stash); designer paper: Die Cuts with a View; grungeboard: Advantus; paint: Ranger; cap, gown, diploma: Jolee's/EK Success; adhesive: Pioneer mounting tape and Crafter's Pick glue.
I'm hoping that he will like this, though I'm sure the other (blue) piece of paper in the card will likely be more appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
