This is a card I created for my niece who is graduating from college this weekend. I am very happy with how this card turned out and hope you agree!

Graduation Card and Fun and Fast Notes, Big Shot, Presto Patterns, Summer Mini, Stampin' Up!


Step 1: Emboss the font of the card with Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice Textured Inpressions Embossin' Folder.

Step 2: Sponge a 4" x 2" of Presto Patterns Specialty Designer Series Paper with Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum. After Sponging, wipe excess ink off the embossed areas of the Presto Patterns Specialty paper.

Step 3: punch a 4" x 1 1/2" strip of Perfect Plum with the eyelet border punch and attach to the Presto Pattern strip.

Step 4: Attach a 6" piece of 5/8" Pretty in Pink Stain Ribbon to cover seam where the Eyelet Border strip is attached to the Presto Pattern piece with Snail.

Step 5: Stamp the Graduation stamp onto Whisper White cardstock and layer onto Perfect Plum. Add to the Presto pattern piece with snail. Attach this section to the cardfront.

Step 6: punch stars from the Brushed Gold cardstock. Attach the small star with a dimensional and the 2 large stars with snail.

Step 7: Stamp the congratulations stamp from Fun & Fast Notes to the inside.
