ScrapMart: So Proud of You

It's graduation season and so many of my friends are experiencing this exciting time in their son's/daughter's lives. I DO NOT look forward to this next year with my first born...sniff, sniff! I dug up a collection that I thought would work well for both boy or girl - Authentique Papers' Genuine Collection and JustRite Stampers' You Are the Best set.

So Proud of You by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: The Paper Company; Patterned Paper: Authentique Papers (Genuine Collection); Stamp: JustRite Stampers (You Are The Best); Ink: Clearsnap (Warm Red, Royal Blue); Embossing Ink: TSUKINEKO (VersaMark); Embossing Powder: American Crafts (Metallic Blue); Tool: Scor-Pal; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-312 Blossom Three, S5-028 Nested Pennants and S4-114 Standard Circles LG) and Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares)

So what do you think? I had to add a pop of red as it was getting too blue! LOL!! This card can be more than a graduation theme, it can be someone getting a new job, receiving an award...a great set to have handy!

For those of you who have a recent graduate - CONGRATULATIONS!! One of many exciting milestone ahead for them :)

Thanks for stopping by!

This is fantastic, Margie! I love that it can be for a male or female and/or for many different occasions. Can I order one now for Alexa's graduation in say...about six years? :)
