Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Don't you just love that book? So appropriate for a new grad! It was the inspiration for this graduation card. This was a very quick shape card using the new H&M Stamps. It started as a 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" car and was then cut out. Piercing was added around the window and rhinestone brad headlights. :-)
Recipe:
Stamps: Celebrate the Day
Paper: basic grey, rose red, whisper white
Ink: memento tuxedo black
Accessories: rhinestone brads, paper piercer, copics

I'm a 5th grade teacher, and we have a "moving up day" ceremony for them (they move on to the Middle School for 6th grade). We read this story to them and have the pages projected on a screen for them to read along. It's a very inspirational story for kids of all ages, I agree! This is a really fun card!
