Our neighbors' daughter recently earned her PhD, so tonight we're heading over there for a celebration dinner. I had been cruising around online looking for ideas for graduation gifts when I saw some shirts and mugs that had "Ph.inisheD." printed on them. I thought it was SO CLEVER! So much so that it inspired this card (which I will give to Dr. Katiekins this evening):
This was a tricky one to photograph, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out in real life :)
I used the Bold and Brushy Stamp Set AND the Bold and Brushy Uppercase Stamp Set from Concord and 9th to create the sentiment. I embossed the Ph.D. in gold to jazz it up a bit.
After I stamped out the sentiment, I die-cut the panel with Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die. To finish it off, I popped the focal panel up onto a card base covered with striped patterned paper.
What do you think?
I hope you like my card for today! I'll be entering this into the most recent Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Use A Die And/Or Punch.
Have a fantastic weekend!!!
