Cheers Graduation Card

As soon as I saw the November stamp of the month, Cheers, I couldn't help but think of graduation!  Maybe we have "senior-itis" here with our oldest graduating in 2016, but I can see the versatility of this set.  Here is part of my inspiration:


For this card, I paired it with the edgy Urban paper pack.
This sketch is from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 2.  For the left panel, I stamped images from the Cheers set in Saffron, Peacock, Sapphire, and Slate.  It was easy to use two colors (Saffron and Sapphire) on the focal image.  You may not be able to tell, but I used a faux leather technique on the Saffron band across the card: I stamped the stars in Saffron and Saddle, then crumpled and wadded up the piece.  I inked the "wad" of card stock in Saffron ink to have color on some of the creases.  The natural tearing and breaking down of the paper just adds to the cool effect.  I finally finished off the card with a strip of bronze shimmer trim and a blue enamel dot.

Cheers to 2016!
