I used Happy Graduation (a cart that I've never used before.. but I've owned it for about.. oh I donno.. since Thanksgiving time lol) to cut out the graduation cap. I took the actual cut out and ripped around the edges of the hats negative. I took a black scrap piece of card stock and ran it through my cuttlebug with the diamond plate embossing folder. Then I inked the black embossed card stock with silver ink. I thought this gave it a nice boyish feel. I used some scraps of red with light red polk-a-dot paper and cut one side with some edge scissors and adhered them to a white card base. After I put down all the other layers I added some foam glitter number stickers to say 2012 and I wrote "ConGRADuations" on the bottom red paper. I outlined grad in silver pen to match the rest of the card. His school colors are silver, black and red.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Scrap It With A Song - Good Riddance/Time of Your Life (this song always reminds me of graduation)
Hope you liked my card today :). Come back tomorrow to check out my project for the CWC blogaversary celebration!
