Masculine Graduation Card for Kylie’s International Blog Hop

I love a good challenge, and Kylie has one for us at the Kylie’s International Blog Highlight May 2017, where the theme is “Masculine” card.  I needed a  graduation card & really like the message this card sends!

Here’s what I came up with:

I love the colors of this card!  Soft Suede & Soft Sky, with a bit of Sahara Sand.  And the textures!

 

These sets are retiring and I’ll miss them!!  It’s always hard when Stampin’ Up! comes up with their RETIRING LIST!!  But I have to admit, I love the new catalog that will be available in June!

RETIRING ITEMS FROM THIS CARD:

Hurry & shop if you want any retiring items!!  Once they’re gone, that’s it!  You’ll find some great sales, too!  Hostess code this month is ZUQUTYX7.

Open it up and it looks like a file folder.  The Night of Navy is beautiful embossed in Silver.  I bought the Confetti Stars Border Punch especially for this card!  So glad I did!

Here are the details:

  • Paper:  Night of Navy -8 1/2 X 9 3/4- (save the extra piece to punch the confetti stars on) then score at 3 1/2 & 7 being careful to score along the shortest side, Brushed Silver (8 1/2 X 1 3/4)
  • Stamps:  Class of 2015, BYOP
  • Extras:  Silver Embossing Powder, Square Framelits (first I punched out #6 square, embossed it, then cut it again with #5 square to leave you some margin for being crooked), Confetti Stars Border Punch, Dimensionals to pop up the front sentiment, Envelope punch board:  punch the left inside corner then punch again at 3″.
