Go Graduate!

Now for a very long, overdue post!  We have the living room floors in but are still working to get the family room ready and I just haven't gotten myself back together enough to get projects done.  I have three or four items to share so hopefully this week I'll get back on track!

My niece is graduating from high school next week so it was time for a graduation themed project.  This is the invitation I designed for her surprise graduation party.  So, don't tell her! 

For this card I used:

  • Go Graduate stamp set
  • Stazon Ink
  • Watercolor Pencils
  • Brilliant Blue, Basic Black, and Whisper White card stock
  • Silver Foil Smooch Spritz
  • Basic Black Satin Ribbon
  • Blender Pens
The card size is 3 1/2 x 6 inches.  I masked off the right side of my cardstock with a torn piece of paper and then used the Smooch Spritz to add a little splash of silver on the left side.  I stamped my mortar board, graduate feet, and owl using the Stazon.  After the images were stamped, I used the blender pens and watercolor pencils to "paint" my images. 

For the center black pieces, I sprayed Basic Black cardstock with smooch spritz, allowed it to dry and then cut to size.  After I used normal copy paper to create little tiny diplomas and tied them with small pieces of silver of elastic cord.  I glued these to the Basic Black. 

Once all the images were adhered to the front of the invitation, I tied a piece of Basic Black satin ribbon around the invitation making sure I covered the top of the graduate feet image.  On the back, we added the invitation information which was printed using the computer. 

God Bless and Happy Stampin!
