Good morning peeps and happy Thursday! Only one more day to go until my favorite day… FRIDAY! As an added bonus it’s Memorial Day weekend so that means that Monday is a holiday! Three day weekend! 🙂 Today’s card is for a friend of mine at work, Valerie. She just got her Masters Degree and her graduation is on Saturday. What an amazing accomplishment! I started with a base of Gumball Green* Card Stock. I stamped the frame image from the Papaya Collage Stamp Set** in Soft Suede. The leaves image was stamped on another piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and adhered to the middle of the frame. I stamped the congratulations from the Layered Labels Stamp Set** in Raspberry Ripple* and cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies**. It’s mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The happy graduation is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is stamped in Gumball Green* and cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelits Dies**. I cut a smaller on in Raspberry Ripple* and cut it in half with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the back of the greeting and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a piece of Soft Suede punched out with the Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Punch to each side of the frame and tucked it behind so that only the edge peeks out. Papaya Collage* is one of my favorite new sets from the 2012-2013 Catalog. I hope that you are inspired by today’s card and thank you, as always, for stopping by. Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
