Last week I sat down with the “Great Grads” stamp set on page 55 of the SU catalog to see what I could come up with. This is the result!
This one I stamped the background all over with the multi-word stamp using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the stamping lined up right. The little cap over the “a” is popped up with a Dimensional. The “G” is layered on a scallop punch with another black scallop behind it for contrast.
This one my demo friend, Anne, embossed the quote with the stamp set in silver, which made something resembling a little plate on the front of the card. Tying the red ribbon around the side strip seemed to add balance.
For this card I CASEd (copied) a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers made by Nancy Riley. She used Designer Paper and the jumbo star wheel whereas I stamped the words on the strip, used a smaller star wheel at the bottom and used my white gel pen on the black strips.
Now I just need to make a special one for my son graduating from the University of Texas at Austin!
