It's that time of year again where graduation cards are great to have on hand. In fact, the first graduation announcement of the year arrived at my house a couple days ago! Today I'm sharing a graduation card featuring the Mama Elephant Page Huggers Stamps and coordinating dies, Congrats Script die, Congrats All Around Stamp Set, and All Prettied Up Dies. How cute are these adorable critters adorned with graduation caps and holding diplomas?!!!!
The bear, cat, mouse, graduation caps, and diplomas from the Page Huggers Stamp Set were stamped on Neenah Smooth Cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. The images were colored with Copic Markers and then die cut with the coordinating Page Huggers Dies. Detail was added to the images with a Sakura Black Glaze Pen and Glossy Accents.
A frame was die cut from smooth white cardstock using All Prettied Up Dies. A greeting from the Congrats All Around Stamp Set was stamped on the frame using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and colored in with Copic Markers.
A dimensional greeting was die cut from a Fun Foam, Stick It, Cardstock sandwich using the Congrats Script die and inked up with Barn Door Distress Ink. I adhered the dimensional greeting below the opening in the frame, above the stamped greeting.
A background for the frame opening was inked with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer, blotted dry and adhered behind the opening. The critters were adhered around the opening as shown and two additional greetings from the Congrats All Around Stamp Set were stamped with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.
The entire panel was adhered to a top fold card base with foam adhesive and the design was finished with a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Mini Star Silver Confetti.
