We are Creatively Redeeming Treasures CTMH Team would love to celebrate this special week with all the graduates! We have created graduation themed projects. You should come from Elizabeth’s blog. I hope you are inspired by her, she is very talented!

Today I made this second graduation card for a friend (to see my first card you can visit here):

It's A Celebration, A Graduation Card by Helen G. | http://wp.me/p1wKGj-1lm #handmadecards #closetomyheart #stamping #embossing #watercolor

I have been playing with my new embossing machine, Evolution Advanced. All Close To My Heart Embossing Folders fit perfectly on this machine.

I cut Black Cardstock (1386) to make 4.25″x5.5″ base card. Then I cut a piece of 4″x5.25″ of White Daisy Cardstock (1385) to emboss it using Quatrefoil Embossing Folder (Z1926).

After embossing the White Cardstock, I colored the quatrefoils with CTMH Watercolor Pencils, Basic colors (retired), and then I wet it lightly & quickly using CTMH brush (retired). Then I heated it to dry using CTMH craft heater (retired).

When the watercolor background dried completely, I stamped the banner from Banner Wishes (B1438) stamp set using Black Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad and heat embossed it with glitter embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Lagoon Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad, heat embossed it with glitter embossing powder. After all dried up well with craft heater, I added the embossed & stamped White Daisy Cardstock on the card based using a lot of Tombow Adhesive so that the cardstock would lay flat on the card.

I finished my card with a banner and arrow border I cut out of Skylark Paper Packet (Z7177B) that I glued them using Glue Dots and then I added couple staples on them.

And the card is done. I hope you like my card today and your next hop is Elizabeth Cammack’s blog to see what she has created for you 🙂

Have a fun crafty day!
