Graduation Day Card Inspiration

Greetings crafty peeps!  I'm up today over on the Moxxie Blog and have a Graduation card to share.

The Graduation season is busy here in Minnesota right now and I needed a card and I needed to make it quickly.  The "Graduation Day" collection from Moxxie is perfect and elegant.

I really love the oval silhouette die cut, so I wanted another layer of black to emphasize the elegant image.  Adding in one more oval frame layer with some foam tape for dimension gave me just the look I was hoping for.

Next, I took the original pattern scallop frame border and cut it at the top and bottom.  It was easy to angle it to tuck under my scallop border trim.  I added an acetate decorative piece at the top to disguise any hint of the alteration.

The sentiment sticker was inked and adhered with foam dots and a bit of grey pearls, seam binding ribbon and stick pins finished the elegant look.
