Graduation already?

This graduation card uses the Stampin' Up! Class of 2015 stamp.

I'm not quite sure how this happened, but my firstborn is graduating in a few weeks. I'm totally sure that I am NOT ready, but my teen sure is!

I was inspired by the sample on page 45 of the spring Occasions catalog. This stamp was the first thing I ordered! I wasn't going to get the confetti punch, but I made a sample using the regular star punch and didn't love it. The teeny stars look fantastic with foil peeking through.

So cute, right? (The real thing does have my address, but I've blurred it here on account of INTERNET.) Now to make a couple dozen more :-).

I made the invite liner using My Digital Studio. I'm sad that this product is being retired, and so glad I bought it before it vanished.

Random digression: I don't ever list the Stampin' Trimmer as a tool, but it's worth a mention here, since clean cutting is key to making this card look elegant. I've owned probably half a dozen trimmers over the years, and most of them are just an exercise in frustration when you have to go back and trim fuzzy edges. Everyone who sets hands on the Stampin' Trimmer buys it. It's about $10 more than the ones in the craft store, and worth every penny.
