Gorgeous Grunge Congratulations

Today I'm sharing with you the simple graduation card I made for my son.  His eight grade promotion ceremony was this past week.  He sometimes read my blog so I couldn't post it here sooner.

I used the new stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge.  I started with smoky slate card stock for my base card.  The main panel is 4" x 5.25" whisper white card stock.  I stamped the lines using coastal cabana ink and the dot splatter were stamped using island indigo ink.  Then I added the gray washi tape across the front of the card.  Washi tapes are great alternative to ribbons.

The sentiment was stamped with island indigo ink on a white cardstock that was die cut with the Apothecary Accents dies.  I stamped the bigger splatters over the sentiment using coastal cabana ink.  I sponged the edges of both the main panel and sentiment label with smoky slate ink.  My son likes bling, so I had to include them on his card.

I really like the new smoky slate color, made me forget that lucky limeade is retired.  Thanks for stopping by today.
