Quick and Elegant Graduation Card

I can’t remember the last time we did this – if ever.

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Ann can get the newest colors, stamps and accessories – and we do.

But today, we needed Delightful Dijon – a color that retired on May 31st.  You see, Ann and my favorite huMAN are invited to a high school graduation party for TWO local graduates.

They go to two different high schools and each will get a card made with their school colors.

The Yuba City Honkers (that’s a duck or goose) use Delightful Dijon and Early Espresso.  It’s important to us that the colors are as right as we can make it.  We hadn’t filed away our Delightful Dijon yet, so it was easy to find.  and here’s the graduation card we made.

Doesn’t that Gold Metallic Foil just shine?

And it just look so masculine!  Perfect for the young man who’s beginning the next phase of his life.

Do you have a graduation to go to this month?  It surely seems like they’re getting earlier all the time!

But first, let me give you a few tips about this one.

Cardmaking Tips

  1. We laid out the letters on the card base after we had attached all the layers.
  2. We glued the two outer letters first and then the R and A.
  3. We attached the Very Vanilla a Early Espresso together with Liquid Glue first and THEN ran it through the Embossing Folder
