i made this cute, easy and simple card for a graduation party we were invited to and i thought it was a nice card to share with you today. 

this is a squared card measuring approx 4" x 4.25".

for this card i used a bazzill black cardstock for my base (which i dry embossed) and a patterned paper from the echo park's collection scoot. 

 i also used a stamp from my mind's eye to stamp the faux stitching on two of the corners.

the stickers (congratulations and the grad hat) are from an old dcwv collection i still have in my stash, :)
the edging was done with an ek success paper punch.
 the school colors (from where this girl is graduating) are black and orange which i tried to incorporate with the stickers.

i normally do not do the inside anymore but since it is a grad card, i needed to finish it.
the sentiment is from a clear stamp. the stars look like the were punched and glued onto the pp but actually they are just the negative backed with cardstock, cool effect.
(oh, and the graphic pattern is the back side of the scoot paper i used on the front)

i hope today's project inspires you to use some of the older products you have in your stash. 

take care and have a great week.
