Here comes the grad ksh3_edited-1

Isn’t this a great graduation set? YES! I used three of the images from the set, stamped with dark blue ink onto this great textured ivory card stock (also from MFP). The images are cut/embossed using Spellbinders Rectangle dies and matted with dark blue card stock before being mounted onto the card front. Now – see that sentiment . . . it is the name of the set and each stamp set comes with one of those, but isn’t it just perfect for this year’s grads? Oh please say yes! Smile I added three dark blue brads for balance and – tah dah!

I hope you like it.
