Stampin'Up! Happy Grad

I've got a "Happy Grad" in my house! My son, Jacob is counting the days until he graduates high school ~ 18 more days! Being a proud mom I have to show the page I did for the high school cross country year book. I did it using My Digital Studio(MDS). Because the cross county year book is in black and white I didn't embellish it. But MDS worked like a charm!
Here's my Jacob ~

The focus of the graduation card is the Vintage Ornament 1 Stencil and the new stamp Happy Grad available in the upcoming Summer Mini catalog available May 1. I'm enjoying experimenting with our stencils. Make sure to stop back on Thursday to see the project I created for Pals Paper Arts. Another awesome way to use Stampin'Up! stencils!

The graduation card starts with a standard 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" Soft Suede card followed by a layer of Very Vanilla cut 1/8" less on the length and width. I added a 2"x4" strip of Bella Bleu Designer Series paper (I am seriously almost out of this paper!) and a 3 1/2"x 4" piece of Bermuda Bay Textured card stock. The sentiment is a piece of Soft Suede card stock inked with Soft Suede ink. (I think next time I would try Chocolate Chip ink to make it a bit darker.) The Vintage Ornament 1 stencil image was sponged prior to the sentiment in Very Vanilla Craft ink and Sponge Dauber. The embelishments are 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin ribbon and Gold Brads.

The layout I cased from a card by Mary Fish.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Please see the recipe for the supplies I used. The stencils you will find in the Decor Element brochure. If you would like more information on our stencils or this project please contact me!

God Bless,

Gorgeous card, Martha!

I love the colors.

Congrats on having a grad in the house. He sure HAS grown! It's so nice to see that he stuck through Cross Country all 4 years. That's awesome!
