Sometimes you want to use school colors for a graduation card but sometimes you might want to get some made ahead. Black and gold are good “generic” colors so that’s what I went with for my card today. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped the “Happy Graduation” sentiment from LLD Happy Graduation all over a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with Encore Gold ink. I matted that with Black Licorice card stock then adhered it to my base.

Then I cut a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock and adhere the “Class of” die cut from LLD Graduation Accents Die-namics to it, along with “2014” using LLD Bright Lights Numbers and Symbols Die-namics. To finish it off, I cut the mortar board from LLD Graduation Accents Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock, popped the extra piece up on foam for dimension, and added a gold tassel before popping the whole thing up on the sentiment strip.

Another sentiment from LLD Happy Graduation was stamped on the inside with Black Licorice ink.
