Graduation Card

A friend asked me to make an Easel Graduation Card for her son!!!  
Paper is Colorbok~~midnight pack that I got at local walmart~~love it for masculine or elegant cards.  The embossed swirls on this dp are embossed and very shiny.  There are 3 layers of paper the white cs, a shiny texturized off-white paper and then the elegant dp.  The saying was computer generated and I found it on somewhere out in blogland.  Cut out with SB nestie and softened with TH weathered wood ink while in nestie adhered to card with foam tape for dimension.  Added blingy grad hat stick-on.  Finished with Wild Orchid flowers and leaves. Oh and if you loook close under the yellow rose is a blingy grad scroll stick-on also :))   American Crafts thickers were used for his name.
Don't ya just love this saying!!

Inside has sleeve with message cards and base of easel card is held up with black pearls.  Completed with ribbon and SB fancy tag.  The sentiment is a Northwoods rubber stamp that I stamped on black cs with versamark and heat embossed with Zing white embossing powder.

Mary Lou I just love this card!! So elegant but yet great male card and perfect for graduation! One of my most favorite paper pads is COlorbok...I went to see if there was a name on it for you but must have been on the pastic wrapper. It is blues and browns and gorgeous, gorgeous paper!
