Saturday Share - Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon Graduation Card and Tutorial





Good Evening Everyone! I am so excited that school is out for Summer and I get to take some time off to relax and of course stamp! My Saturday Share is a Graduation Card created with the Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon stamp set. I stamped the grad hat and ribbon image with Black StazOn and I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch to punch it out. I then used the Stampin' Up! Sassy Salutations stamp set for my Congratulations sentiment. Finally, as an added touch, I created a coordinating envelope by stamping the grad hat image in the corner. I loved how it turned out!  Bonus tip: Use the school's colors instead of Black and White!

Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White

Ink: Black StazOn

Stamp: Blue Ribbon, Sassy Salutations

Accessories: 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch
