The Kraft Journal #122 Celebrations - Graduation Card




Good Monday Morning!

For today's "Celebrations" challenge at The Kraft Journal, I chose to make a graduation card.  It's that time of year for Grads and Dads. It sure seems like time is just flying right on by! I started with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock as the base onto which I added my pieced patterned papers from my stash of scraps. 

I added a gray die-cut trim to the left side of the card front next adding a doily to go underneath the Grungy Stained Hangtag which has a layer of Vintage Dictionary Pages and stamped images from DeNami Designs.  I used the Graduation Owl which has been colored with Copics and the Cling Graduation Set.  The sentiment Congrats is from the Thoughtful Greeting Stamp Set

I  further embellished the tag by adding some buttons and a paper bloom. My final finishing touch includes adding a length of Natural Twill Tape which I tied off in a bow embellished with a button and Natural Hemp Cord.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other gals.  We hope to see your Celebrations creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am joining in at The Ribbon Carousel - Celebrations, D.L. Art Thankful Thursday - Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - Linky Party

Have a magnificent Monday!

So. Much. Awesome.
That owl is adorable - and every single element works so perfectly! Love the doily & doily edge, and the twill & buttons...happy sigh :) The big rush for grad cards has a 'pause' here with the university & high school being a month apart, so I have time to breathe & absorb some awesome ideas :)
