CTC#30 Graduation

Well luckily for me I am actually travelling to South Carolina for my nephew's Graduation from Clemson University. SO making a Graduation Card was not only a necessity but a good reason to make something extra special.

You will have arrived here from Allison's amazing blog.

 I used the colour inspiration from the Occasions Catalogue and created a double Easel Card (Another first for me) because I wanted the stars to be suspended in the Deco framelits frame. The gold doesn't show too well in the photos but believe me it sparkles!!!

Congratulations Connor.

This is a picture heavy post - but it's easier than writing the description!








Gold Foil, Black Cardstock, Naturals White Cardstock, Confetti Star Border Punch, Medium star punch (retired) Stamp sets: Stylish Star (retired), Pictogram Punches, Chalk Talk, Good Greetings(retired) Gorgeous Grunge and Simply Wonderful (SAB).
Gold and Black Embossing Powder

I found some instructions on a simple google search but the measurements were unique to this card.

If you came around the CTC bloghop you will have seen Jess's cute mortarboard hat mini treat box. She pointed out that the TGIF challenge this week is also Graduation - must be the season for it!


Enjoy all the inspiration from the  CTC Blog hop team, 
you can see the full crew and continue on the blog hope from here.

thanks for looking, 


cheers, Liz

PS. Well as I wrote this before we went, I can now add that my trip to Southern Carolina was wonderful. There is nothing quite like spending time with family, it was a crazy quick trip but worth it because it is a rare occasion that the family is all in one place together. 
Connor was amazed that I made the card! Had I known just how much emphasis is placed on college colours I probably should have added some orange and purple for Clemson Uni!

  15. Awesome card, Liz! What a perfect way to honour an important celebration for your nephew. I have to say I love the gold balloons tucked in the wrapping of the beautifully co-ordinated gift, that's a fun little embellishment! :)

  16. Thanks so much Helen, you do have an eye for detail !! The balloons tied in the gift wrap is something my mother started doing 40+ years ago. we always do it in our family - or fresh flowers from the garden. she always has been ahead other time - lucky me to draw inspiration from her.
