A Guy Greetings Graduation Card

Today I was still playing with the "Open Panel" Technique. It's so fun and it's a great way to use up the smaller pieces of decorative paper you have laying around.  You can see my first card along with the measurements and instructions here. I made sure the "here" link is working.  I'm notorious for not adding it!!  But I thank my readers for reminding me it isn't working!! Someone has to watch me, I can't watch myself all the time!!! LOL 

For my card I used some scraps from the "Neutrals" Decorative Paper Stack.  Since I was making this card for a female, I was able to use the flowered paper.  The flowered paper used here is Smoky Slate.  I wanted something lighter than the black.  It would have been too dark.  I have no idea what the school colors are, we just got a photo invitation.  It's for a very distance cousin whom I've never met in my life!! So hopefully they won't be concerned with the colors!!

The hat was a framelit die that a friend of mine had brought over.  I used some retired black glitter paper to make it.  I set the hat in place using Dimensionals.  I had cut out several of them for future use.  It's always good to have a few extra cards on hand.

The words are from the "Guy Greetings" set.  I stamped them with black Memento ink.  I did use the new Basic Black ink and after taping the back I turned it over and set it on the layer, I ran my finger across the words to get it to stick better and the ink smeared.  I thought it was dry.  It looked dry and it had plenty of time to dry.  I was very disappointed and got out the Memento ink.  I taped it in place, no Dimensionals.

It was a pretty easy card to make.  I wish Stampin' Up! would come up with some celebration dies like that.  Maybe some shamrocks, Easter eggs, pumpkins, etc.  You get the picture. But I do especially like this graduation cap.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
