Grad Gumption

I've been doing a lot of 'double dipping' lately--using cards for more than one purpose--and this card is no exception!  This is another one of the cards I designed for my Stamp-A-Stack class, and I also made some up to use as floor swaps for convention.  Floor swaps are the ones that you make up and just trade with other demonstrators as you meet them. . . . before a general session, before a class, at lunch, in the elevator. . . . or pretty much anywhere.  :-) 

This is another card that is pretty simple and also uses a layout that I've used before.  It shows off several new items.  The 3 main colors are all new In Colors: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, and Gumball Green.  I think they look fabulous together!  I also used a little bit of the new Stitched Satin ribbon that is available in the 2012-2014 In Colors. 

The sentiment and graduation caps come from the set Pure Gumption.  I stamped the sentiment and then ran it through the Big Shot with an Apothecary Accents Framelits die.  I just hand trimmed off the second little 'bump' on the right side.  The texture on the Midnight Muse panel came from the new Argyle Embossing Folder

These colors are great together! I just used them 2 weeks ago on a card too. Great card...love the tag with the one end trimmed. TFS!
