Freshly Made Sketches #432


Be prepared for an onslaught of graduation cards!  I have many to create for myself as well as a few custom orders.  I only mass produce cards by request, as I prefer all of my creations to be unique.  I am hitting up all my favorite sketch challenges to help out with the task.  This card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-

My desk is currently a sea of green and gold with a mix of graduation stamps! I kept my card super simple, letting the stitched dies add in the details. My yellow stitched center stripe is from a frame die, I just cut off the top strip. My sentiment and cap are stamped in Intense Black ink with color added with Prismacolor pencils.  The pencils are blended out with Gamsol.  The cap was adhered with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
M1201 Graduation Cap Stamp Set-Retired
Congradulations Stamp Set-There She Goes Clear Stamps
