For the Graduate


The challenge over on CAS-ual Fridays is to make something for Graduation, my card is aimed more at the younger generation, very young in fact!


Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White; Patterned Paper (My Minds' Eye)
Ink: Antique Linen & Vintage Photo Distress inks
Stamps: PTI (Way To Go Kiddo); Hero Arts (CL404)
Other: Brads (Recollections); PTI Alphabet Impression Plate

I dampened the cream cardstock before using the Impression plate on it, apparently it makes the impression more defined. I think it  did the trick.  I used some Antique Linen DI around the edges.  The two little snails are paper pieced and their bodies are adhered with dimensional dots.

Just something simple today.  Have an awesome day!
