Graduation Card for CYCI#123 and SSC128

Graduation time is here and I've been busy making cards for the occasion.  The one I made today happens to apply to two challenges: Can You Case It and Sunday Stamps.  Here's my latest graduation card:



Here are the banners for the two challenges I used for inspiration:



I chose the ship from the Traveler Stamp Set for my image.  Graduating is the process that leads to the next step in your life's journey, so I thought it was appropriate. I colored the image with Dapper Denim, Real Red and Basic Gray markers and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment is from a new set called Thoughtful Banners.  This set has so many possible sentiments to use.  I chose "graduation" and stamped it in the open space on my banner image.  I was able to punch out my banner with the new Duet Banner Punch.  

The background panel is stamped with an image from the Timeless Textures Set.  I use this stamp set so often that I always just leave it on my desk.  No sense to put it away because I use it all.the.time.

I mounted both panels on Real Red and adhered them to my card base.  The card base was jazzed up a bit with some scoring to frame my image.

I wish the best for all 2016 graduates!

Happy stampin',
Robin
