With the new Design Team members joining us in June, we'll be having a little schedule roulette, so my posting day will be moving. I'm excited to see what the new kids on the block are doing and (gasp!) June is almost here! And DRS will having a Stamp a Day giveaway in June! You're going to love it, so be sure to check back for more details!

It seems every other kid in my neighborhood is graduating this year, so I'm going to need a lot of these. I tried to keep it on the simpler side and gender neutral. Ok, there's a ribbon, but it's in a knot. Guys like knots. Girls like ribbons. I thought I could also swap the peach layers for a lt blue for a more masculine look.

I used chalk inks to stamp the sentiment and grad cap and my Out of the Box Nestie technique to cut it out using a labels 2 nestie. I used the same die and traced it around it for the navy layer and the next larger one for the peach layer.

For the background, I sponged on the chalk inks in streaks then stamped over it using the same inks and the star background image. I used the same ink to color the white grosgrain ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to give the graduates in your life a big pat on the back for a job well done!
