A Graduation...

Today a friend of ours is graduating from the Police Academy so I used this week's SCS Sketch Challenge to create a bold and non-fuss congratulatory card.  I also got to use this fab graduation stamp that is part of the Favorite Occasions set by JustRite Stampers.  This set and ALL the 1 5/8 stamps are 20% off through the month of March - go check it out and see what bargains you can find!!!!

I have to say, this card is VERY CAS for me, but I think it turned out OK for our Police Constable!  It starts with a base of white layered with Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  The Navy layer has been embossed with the Star EF (stars for Police of course!).  Next I took a piece of Urban Garden DSP and cut it with the Label 8 die and sliced one end off.  Over the end I added a piece of May Arts White Satin ribbon.  The feature panel has been stamped twice with a centre and border from Favorite Occasions stamp set by JustRite Stampers.  The first panel was cut with Large Circle Nestabilities and the other I cut out only the middle using a 1 1/4 circle punch and popped it up in the middle after colouring with a little bit of Not Quite Navy and Basic Grey.  I then matted it with a piece of NQN (cut with Small Circle Nesties) and then a piece of white cut and embossed with the Label 9 Nesties.  To finish I added three small silver brads to the corner of the Label.

Stamps - Favorite Occasions (JustRite)
Paper - White, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Urban Garden DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Not Quite Navy, Basic Grey
Accessories - Label 9, Large and Small Circle Nestabilities, Star EF, May Arts White Satin Ribbon, Silver Brads, Foam Tape.

Don't forget that next week starting the 23rd there is a MASSIVE JustRite Blog Hop featuring 75 designers all using the beautiful botanical stamps that are now available!!

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

I think this will do just fine for a police officer! Love the clean lines and wonderful blues. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated :D

We just got back from heading back in to Vancouver today to do the Zipline! Oh my word, was that fun!!! The 30 minute ride was worth the 3 hour line up :D We met so many wonderful people in line too - think that has been one of the highlights of standing in long line ups. Then off to the Vancouver Art gallery and the BC Pavilion for some more wonderful things to see. Think I wore the kids out but good so hopefully I can sneak some stamping time in tomorrow LOL!
