Concord & 9th – Triple Step Hooray
I was commissioned to do a couple of graduation cards on Etsy, and like a crazy person, I ended up making THREE cards so there was some choice. The recipients were both graduating from the same college with colors of red and black, which is pretty much the color scheme I used on all of them. The first one I made was using this set, which was part of the April release at Concord & 9th. Lookie:
This was so fun to stamp! I used Altenew’s Red Sunset inks to do the Hooray.
I used the Confetti Card dies also by Concord & 9th to create the background. I put some red glitter card stock behind the white layer to peek through and make it extra festive. The little grad hat die is from Taylored Expressions.
I fussy cut out the stars and the tag line and popped them up over the card front. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the centers of the stars for even more bling.
The last thing I did was putting a embossed line with my score board around the outside, just to give it a little more of a frame. This is one of the cards my customer chose!
