It’s Graduation week!!!! Hooray! I’ve been looking forward to this week for 6 long years for my husband to finish his Ph.D. and it’s finally here, so naturally I had to use the Spellbinders Ornate Squares for his Graduation Card! Now, I know you’ll look at this card and think, “What? That doesn’t look like a graduation card.” Let me explain. When writing your dissertation, I’m convinced that you loose a little of your sanity and start looking for anything to entertain yourself. My hubster picked up magic tricks as his new hobby, so I was so excited that this new Bo Bunny Anthem paper had face cards on it! So, he may be getting a doctorate degree in organic chemistry, but it has been the magician inside that has kept him sane the past few months. This is exactly what I love about homemade cards! You can do any theme you want, use any paper you want (even if it’s technically for the 4th of July), and make it personal.
The Spellbinders Ornate Squares are seriously TO DIE FOR! They are gorgeous! I also used the matching stamps by JustRite (the Ornate Happiness Squares) which are equally beautiful. I’m not sure if you can see it in the picture, but I stamped around the star paper with the graduation cap on it with the Ornate Happiness Squares. It adds just the right detail. The graduation/congratulations stamp was something I thought I’d never use and was elated to rediscover last night! Just what I needed. It’s part of the JustRite Summer Words stamps. So glad I had them! I will be using more and more of them in the near future.
So, it’s the season of graduation and you can now make a personalized card for your lucky graduate. Congratulations Class of 2013!
