Graduates 2008

This being the season for graduation parties I thought I would share with you the card I made for all the Open Houses we had this summer. We were invited to 3 Open Houses this past month. Two Open Houses were Grandville High School Students (I had to make 2 of these for the 1st open house because they were twins) and one was a Byron Center Student – So – seeing as both Grandville's and Byron Center's mascot is the bulldog, I got to make the same card over. Making the same card was hard for me because I just like to be different. However, I really like how this card turned out so I made it for all the grads.

The stamp set I used is from Stampin' Up!, I used Bravo Burgundy, brushed silver (retired) and whisper white cardstock from SU. I cuttlebugged the top burgundy piece with the polka dot embossing folder to add dimension. It doesn't show up very well in the picture (I really need a new camera - hint hint Santa!) I glittered the G for Grad and the hat using the 2 way glue pen and dazzling diamonds. For the boys I didn't use the glitter though. The bulldog (my favorite part of the card) is embossed using my wizard die cut/embosser and a brass embossing template in which I cannot remember what company it is from and I am too lazy (It's Sunday and I'm missing my nap to blog J) to go down to see what it is. If you absolutely must know where I got the bulldog brass template, just leave me a comment here and I will let you know.

I hope you like the card, It really was fun and I think I need to make a few more. Oh yes and the card is 6 x 3 ¾ which is the size card that fits when you make your own envelope form the 5 in 1 Envelope template. I used the 5 in 1 template to make a cool envelope with some designer paper.- it adds a nice personal touch. Have a super day. I'm off to help the hubby set up the kids' pool!
