Festive Friday #58

Graduation card production is still in the works!  I will be moving on to new catalog products this weekend!  This card was super simple, but really makes a statement.  My card is created based on the Festive Friday Challenge.  The design team has some gorgeous copper creations going on!  I so love the look, but I have no copper in the collection. I so see adding in at least copper embossing powder in the near future.  Here is the inspiration list-

I went with green, congratulations sentiment and embossing folder. To create my card, I dry embossed a white panel and then die cut with a stitched frame die.  I cut the Congrats sentiment three times in black and adhered together, then applied to a white base layer. My cap was stamped in Intense Black in and color added with Prismacolor pencils.  The pencils were blended out with Gamsol.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Nothing more stylish and cleaner than a black and white card, and so glad you shared it with us at TIME OUT!!
