Congrats Grad - MIM #120



I'm just getting around to making the graduation cards that I need today! The latest Papertrey Ink MIM #120 - Overlapping Ombre inspired my creation. I used the Watercolor Wonder to create my ombre using Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, and Canyon Clay.


The local school colors are orange and black. I used the new Star Spangled Impression plate to add some texture. I think you can see it best in the picture up top.

A border created with the Super Star border die ran through my Xyron machine. Do you have a Xyron? I purchased it after a suggestion from Dawn McVey for another MIM. I'm so glad I got it. My hat is popped up!

Have a great week! ~Rhonda

  5. I love this! Great graduation card!!! I too have a xyron - it really does come in handy when you have intricate die cuts that need to be put onto a project! Plus it is wonderful for glittering too! :)
