Even though everything looks a little different this year, it's still the time to celebrate graduations! I love the use of rainbows lately to show love and support to people while we're social distancing, so I thought some rainbow graduation cards would be really fun. I made three different cards using the same basic layout, stamps, and colors, but each card uses a different technique. For these cards I used the retiring Check You Out stamp set. This stamp set has only been around for a year and it was one of my absolute favorites from this catalog. I'm so sad to see it go! Because I just couldn't put the set down, check out a 4th, very different graduation card using the same set at the bottom of this post.
While I chose a rainbow for my cards, they could be done in any color combination you like or even in just one color.
On scraps of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the owl with Crumb Cake ink and added a graduation hat and glasses. I also stamped the books. I fussy cut all of these images. For the greeting, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock. Before I attached all of these pieces with Stampin' Dimensionals, I laid down a little nest of Silver Metallic Thread over the Daffodil Delight circle. Then, I added the stamped images and a few basic rhinestones.
