Here are a couple of graduation cards I made using the Happy Grad stamp:
I made the cards in each of the graduate's school colors. The red and black one was inspired by a card posted on Splitcoast by berlycece. It was for a girl. The blue and gold one was for a boy, so I used the first card as inspiration for the second.
Inside, I put some more embossed butterflies (red and black card) and stamped some star images (blue and gold card). I think the star stamp came from Sporting (which is retiring). I also combined sentiments from three sets to get the message I wanted to say (Congratulations, You did it!, and Happy Graduation).
The background textures are not SU, but everything else is. The black twine is retired (but I can get you a pack if you want one) and some of the colors (Brilliant Blue and Summer Sun) are retiring. Everything else, including the Basic Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, is staying.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoyed it! Sue Root
