Grad Cards

We have a need for quite a few grad cards this year.  I made these cards using school colors of the graduate.
  This card uses a Hero Arts background stamp and a digi from Create with TLC. I used the 'Color Sandwich' technique from Techique Junkies new newsletter. The diploma uses the modern label punch from SU.
  Next, I used a digi paper from Create with TLC and a digi from Firecracker Designs by Pamela (she closed her store last year).

For the diploma- punch out the modern label punch from SU- roll it around something round- a pencil or a paintbrush handle.  You'll need to cut out a small piece of paper to roll up and put under it to be able to glue it down to your card. Tie fiber in matching school color around it.

Have a safe and happy weekend.
