Special Grad Card for Matt

I wanted to make a special card for Matthew and I have fallen in love with the SU Ampersand textured impressions folder that was retired from the catalog this last cycle.  I used it for this graduation card and then an anniversary card you will see on my next blog.  I did have to use the retired bravo burgundy ink again as it matched his school colors.  Sadly, I wish I had the ink refill as the ink pad is getting quite dry used to be one of my go-to colors.  This card incorporated stamps from a variety of SU stamp sets.  The "congratulations" stamp is from the SU "Something to Say" stamp set.   The outline for the SU Word Bubble at the bottom is from the SU "Just Sayin" stamp set.  The saying in the bubble is from the 2012-2013 SU catalog, "Pure Gumption."  The fun of stampin with friends...collectively, we can certainly maximize our stamp sets.  That makes it really fun.

As Much as we wanted a nice picture with Matthew, he hates to have his picture taken so we had to grab one just before he turned his gown in.  Oh well....the diploma is in hand.  I guess that is what really matters.  His graduation night was memorable in that we had one of the worst storms in history.  We must thank all our wonderful family and friends that "weathered" the storm to come out and party with us.  It was a great evening.

  1. OMG! That dress is gorgeous!!!! Why haven't I seen that photo before???? As for the card, smashing! Love the white space. The embossed ampersand provides focal point and texture.
