My son-in-law Chris recently graduated from college! A fantastic accomplishment, and we are so happy for him and his family! This is the card that I created to acknowledge this great achievement. I kept it masculine with earthy colors and images.
To create this masculine congratulations card, I started with a card base of Natural Composition Specialty paper cut 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″. The Natural Composition dsp has a cardstock weight so it’s perfect for a card base. I paid special attention to the orientation of the embossed lines of this paper before I trimmed the card base out.
The leaves stamp is from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set and I stamped the left side first in Summer Starfruit and then in Always Artichoke.
I used the strip of paper left over from cutting out the card base to create this tag. I stamped “congratulations” from the Sweet Sentiments stamp set on the backside of the embossed paper and then punched the ends of the tag with the Curly Label punch. I added a bit of Linen Thread to the tag before adhering it to the card base with dimensionals.
