Congrats Grad!

Hello! Today I have the graduation card I made for my niece who graduates from college next week. Her school colors are purple and while. I added gold and sparkles:

I used Elegant Eggplant (retiring May 31) for the background of the accordion card. And for each panel I used the beautiful gold foil paper in the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper (also retiring). The letters are cut using the Large Letters Framelits dies, in Elegant Eggplant and I finished the card by adding sparkle with stars cut from gold and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper, and purple glimmer paper (not Stampin’ Up!).

I then used the Lots to Love Box Framelits die to make a box for the accordion card. I decorated the box the same as the card and added a gold foil belly band. The Congrats die is not from Stampin’ Up! but the gold glimmer paper is.

I added a Fresh Fig tassel from the Mini Tassels assortment (also retiring), glueing it to keep it in place.

I hope my niece likes it! Especially with a gift card tucked inside! 😉

Thanks for stopping by!
