Graduation Card No Ribbon

I was not happy with the card I posted yesterday so I had to try it again. It was the ribbon that was keeping me from liking the card so I took the ribbon off. But then without that strip of "something" going vertically in that spot it would no longer qualify to be the 126 Sketch card. SOOOOO!!! I took another piece of the embossed white and added the black layer to the back of it. Talk about BLAH! I dug out the brayer and we all know how much I hate to use the brayer. Not because it's difficult to use but because I hate to clean it!!! LOL I rolled it in Staz-0n and wheeled it over the embossed strip. I put the pieces in place and liked the card a lot better.

Venture on over to SplitCoastStampers sometime and participate in one of their sketches, it's a lot of fun and everyone over there is SO nice. I haven't participated in any of their challenges yet but I plan to sometime. For now I'm enjoying the sketches. I am loving new and different card layouts. And this card didn't have any buttons or brads so it qualifies as a "Machinable" card so it's only 41 cents to mail!!! With the postage increase I will be rethinking my Christmas cards. No brads, no eyelets or buttons. I sent out too many to have to pay that extra postage. SO I'll be racking my brain looking for just the right card to make for Christmas. I may have to post the components on here and get your creative minds working to help me out!! Sounds like a fun Blog Candy game, huh?

Have a safe and happy weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi I liked your previous graduation card for this weeks sketch challenge, but now I see this one too - I think I agree this one has that something extra and I love it.

Just love what you have done with this sketch. Thanks for the idea about using a brayer to hi-light the embossed piece - very creative.

Never thought to brayer over the embossing thanks for the idea. I am in the same boat as you I hate to clean the brayer. Yet another great card!
