For The Grad

Hello! Graduation season is upon us. This is Kara and where I live graduation is just a few weeks away. Since I interpret in a high school I need a few graduation cards for some special students.

WPlus9 has an adorable set called Smart Kitty that was designed with the graduate in mind. However, there is another set that I think is perfect for this occasion. Dream Believer is full of inspirational messages perfect for someone embarking on a new phase of life.  I've used both sets today along with a few others.

I started by creating a pattern with a small stamp from the Papel Picado set using Ocean Drive, Wild Mango, and Mojito dye ink. On top of my stamped pattern I added this quote from Dream Believer in Black dye ink.

I decided to add this adorable panda from Friends For All Seasons to draw your attention to the quote. He's wearing a graduation cap and tassel die cut and stamped with Smart Kitty.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!
