Graduation with PPRS
With the Graduation Season fast approaching, I decided that those are the cards I need to be working on now! Here I am using the Prickley Pear Flourished Graduate for my main image. I find that the solid images work best when stamped with VersaFine Ink. It is a fast drying pigment ink and the ink doesn't bead up on the stamp leaving a splotchy impression. I used the Cheery Lynn background die for the background of the card. I have made several graduation cards like this and chose the main color of the school for this piece. Then I adhered it to a black card front. Mounted the image on black paper, cut out the corners (Also a Cheery Lynnn Die set) and added that to the graduate. I then used the new Graduation sentiment for the front of the card. I just stamped the first part of the saying onto white cardstock for the front of the card, then stamped the rest of the saying on the inside! Finally I used the Beautiful Flowers Clear set, Cheery Lynn die cut leaves, Candi and Pearl Pen to add extra embellishments to the card. Check out the PPRS blog for more inspiration!
