The daughter of a good friend recently graduated from college. I recall when she was born! How did that time go by? Anyway, I wanted to send her a graduation card and the Vertical Greetings stamp set caught my eye. I’m happy with how this just a bit non-traditional graduation card turned out.

Design Notes for Vertical Greetings Graduation Card:

Again, I seem to be into clean and simple cards. The only cute/clever thing about this card was how I colored the topiary. I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to add color directly to the stamp. A little huff before I stamped and it was done.Vertical Greetings, Marker to stamp technique, Stampin' Up/,

Here’s a link to a little video I created to show you this easy technique.

Oh, well I guess there was one other cute thing. I used a Real Red Stampin’ Blend to color a few Epoxy Heart Droplets. Isn’t that a cool trick?
