The Sky is the Limit

Nice to see you here.  It is that time of year again for graduations. Cheery Lynn has a awesome Graduation die set as well as the sentiment "Graduation" so thought I would play with these dies to make a graduation card .

I started this card by embossing the base with the Clocks Embossing Plate  .
I then layered the Burlap Border  near the bottom. That gave me the base I wanted to build on.

Along the left side I have cut the Pierced Banners (Set of 3)  out of map paper and matted it with black cardstock. Because of the printed sentiment "The Sky is the Limit"  I thought the plane from the new Fun Travel Die Set would be perfect to layer on the banner and make it a great guy card.

The burlap border made a nice background to layer the grad hat and diploma on from the Graduation Set (Set of 2. I used gold paper for the tassle and ribbon as well as for the Graduation sentiment. I used some gold outline sticker along the top.

I used the two of the dies from the Say What? (Set of 16  for the  clouds in the sky and to print the sentiments on.

This is a front view of the card. All die cuts are popped up for added dimension. The banner I glued just along the top of the card and let it stick out at the bottom for even more dimension. I was quite pleased with the way the Graduation Set and the NEW Fun Travel Die Set  pair so well together to create this card.

Don't forget  there is  a new Bi-Weekly Challenge started at
