For the Graduate

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are keeping well wherever you are.
Popping in to share a card I made for my son who just graduated from high school.
I bought this Magnolia stamp years ago for this special occasion.
Finally I got to stamp it and color up this sweet
Graduation Edwin or Eric!

I inked up the stamp with Staz-on Timber Brown ink and
water colored the image with Distress Ink pads.
I embossed around the image with white Frantage for added texture.

I used Eric's favorite color blue for the color theme and added some red and
amber as accents. I stenciled the background paper edges using white embossing paste
and a 6x6 The Story stencil  from The Crafter's Workshop.

Designer paper~ Maja Design Life in the Country and Life by the Sea collection
Dies ~ Go Kreate, La La Land Crafts, Marianne Design and Tim Holtz Sizzix

I am proud of Eric's achievement.
He has maintained a good grade and obtained a District Scholarship 
towards his university tuition from Ministry of Education.
Well done my child!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Wish you a lovely day!


I am participating in the following challenges:

So nice to read this post of a proud mommy! Eric must be one clever guy if he obtained that scholarship! I like your card Katie, the added texture look very interesting. I also LOOOVE how you distressed the paper edges, did you do it manually or used any machin (like for ex. Zutter - Distrezz It All)?
