A dear friend of the family, and loyal blog reader, asked if I had any graduation stamps in my collection. She's such a devoted teacher, she's going to make cards for her students.
I didn't yet own any, but knew exactly what stamp set would be perfect for the job.
I was really happy when I saw Great Grads in the Stampin Up catalogue. Last year I had a lot of requests for Grad cards and no appropriate stamps for the job. I just adore this set and was happy for an excuse to pick it up! Thanks Mary Jane!
The school's colors are red and white, which I think are just so classic paired with some black for that cap and gown. I wanted to keep the design fresh, but not too difficult to replicate, so I strayed from my usual dependence on punches and scalloping. A quick wheel with the So Swirly background wheel, a touch of striped grosgrain ribbon and two silver brads.
MJ I hope you like it. We'll have a mini stamp class tonight when you come pick up your supplies! Can't wait till you're out of school for the summer and we can get that girls stamping night planned!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back with MFTeasers next week!
