For Dad...
Retro Rubber Challenge #17...

Happy Graduation...

Happy Monday!  Today I am sharing the graduation card I made for a couple of gals who graduated from high school.  I hadn’t used my texture paste in a while so I thought that would make a great background for my card. grad1 (558x640)

I started with translucent embossing paste and my tiles stencil to make the design on the midnight muse cardstock.  While waiting for the paste to dry, I dug out my PTI retro style graduation stamps and dies.  I stamped the images in midnight muse onto the white CS and then die cut the image.  Then I stamped the sentiment in versamark so that I could silver emboss it.  Our colors are blue and white with some silver.  So I added my silver in with the embossing, rhinestones and metallic thread. grad2 (640x385)

After looping my thread around the sign, I popped it onto the card front and added the sentiment.  I scattered rhinestones on there for a bit of bling and put everything on a card base of white.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check in tomorrow, the new Retro Rubber challenge starts!

Very trendy and I love it! The embossing paste is what I need to get into next. I have several of them but never think to use it!
