It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Graduation Card featuring Grad Boy – R114 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Lg. Fancy Congrats – J006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. My nephew graduated a while ago, but we just found out about it. So this is a belated graduation card. LOL! You know what they say, better late than never!!
To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cut at 5.25″ x 4″ using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used just the hat and stamped it at different angles to create my background. The images were coloured in with Copic Markers. I decided to pop one hat up in the air. I stamped it separately, fussy cut the image and then coloured it in and popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
To finish off the card, I used double-sided tape and attached the coloured image onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock from The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards.
