Congrats Grad

We had several graduations this spring/summer. All of them out of town. I think there were 6 in all between family and friends. We attended as many as we could, which was no small feat.  Given that the graduations were both male and female I wanted to come up with a card that would suit both and be classic. I went with the traditional white and black and added in the new Smoky Slate color to soften the harshness of the black/white combo.  Any other color would have worked but had the possibility of looking too male or too female. Yes I know I could have individualized the card, but choose not too. 

The mortarboard is just a simple square popped up with a dimensional. The roll of paper is copy paper. I tried using cardstock but it was way to heavy to curl up tightly. In the end good old printer/copy paper did the job. I tied it off with white Bakers Twine. 

Yes I cut all the letters with the Big Shot. That was no big deal. I found it took a long time to glue, yes glue! down the individual letters. I guess I am not used to putzy work like that. Or at least I think its putzy. There was probably an easier way to do it, but I did not use it. 

Congratulations to all the grads. Well done ladies and gentlemen.

Thank you for stopping by, happy stamping, Sandy
