Graduation Card for John

We have two graduates in our home!  Grace graduated from ASU in May and I've yet to share her card . . . coming soon!  John graduated from High School last week, and this is the card he called "sick", as only a teenager could!

I started with Ten Second Studio's Metal Sheet in Black Pearl and used the Darice graduation caps embossing folder to give it some texture.  The front of the card is Sizzix Framelits Drop-Ins 661574 die cut from red cardstock.  Congratulations and the stars are die cut from Recollections Silver Glitter Paper.  It is really shimmery in the sunlight, the photograph does not do the shine justice!  The accent stars are from Sizzix One in a Million Thinlits 3D Drop-Ins 662256 along with the Sizzix Celebrate Thinlits 3D Drop-Ins 661574.  The card base is Recollections black cardstock.

The inside is Sizzix Celebrate Thinlits 3D Drop-Ins 661574 with a few more embellishments.  The scallops are the Sizzix Framelits Drop-Ins 560147.  I cut one side from patterned Black Out by Trim Craft.  The other is white cardstock.  The choice of colors to match John's high school colors made creating this card easy although a bit time consuming.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Stay tune for more graduation cards . . . they have already been sent, but I didn't have the time to blog and share them with you!
