Graduation Card

I have a rather large family, so the beginning of the summer usually starts off with graduations.  This year, we had three graduations to celebrate.  My sister-in-law graduating from law school, my husband graduating medical school, and my niece graduating from high school.  You could say we have been a little busy lately.  Because of all of these exciting events, I've had a great excuse to do lots of cardmaking.

Today I made a card for my niece's high school graduation.  The card is stamped with one of the stamps from the Irresistibly Ikat stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  This is one of my go-to stamp sets.  It is extremely versatile and can be used for just about any occasion.  I stamped the pattern with alternating colors of Dew Drop ink in Aquatic Splash, Pink Grapefruit, and Nautical Blue.  I am really happy with the color combination as it reminds me of summer and my sweet niece.  

The pattern is stamped on Whisper White and mounted on Basic Gray cardstock from Stampin' Up.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler, which is a great sentiment set to own.  

This week, I'll be playing along with the CAS-ual Friday Challenge to create a clean and simple congratulations card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
