Grad Dreams

It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge this week! So a big congrats to Catherine, the newest Featured Stamper. She has a lovely, fun gallery & I saw many I wanted to case..but I finally chose THIS. (I actually saw a lot of cards w/ stars!) I love the stars, so I kept those, but used a die instead of a stamp for the stars, used different colors & made mine a graduation card.

My card is pretty CAS, I had a bg…actually a lg white envelope that I kept under my card stock when I was sponging, spraying & what not, & it looked so pretty & glittery, I saved it. I die cut the Stars out of the front & added the bg behind it. I put the white outline back in place & used a silver Wink of Stella on some. It was really surprising to me how much sparkle it added in comparison to the clear I used on the capital letters of the greeting & a couple of the other white star frames. I added some diplomas & mortarboards in the left corner.

Here’s the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
