Graduation cards

My dad asked me to make him a couple graduation cards.  I have had these Mag stamps forever but never used them so was quite excited......first to think he wanted me to make him some cards and second to finally use these darling stamps.  I did add a mouth to them because he had stated before he wasn't fond of the "stamps with out faces".  lol  I colored them with copics with a few pencil highlights and popped them up for more dimension.  I used the school colors for each. The paper with diplomas all over it was found buried deep in a pile I have not even looked at in over 2 years!  You wouldn't believe the awesome papers I came across.  I couldn't believe how much nicer the older papers are.....heavy and so easy to work with.  I added the girl's name but just put the boys initials since his name was a bit long.  I also made them step cards as that style seemed to work with my simple plans.  The letters are die cuts from a sizzlet set.  A little stickles and ribbon and I called them done.  lol

Thanks so much for stopping by.  With dh away for the week, I am hoping to get more scrapping done!  God bless you all.
