Graduation Card & Banner with Kristii Lockart

Hi there dear friends! I have a different type of post for you today!  My daughter graduated from college this past December and I wanted to make some special decorations for the celebration since there were no graduation decorations available.  The school colors were blue and gold and I immediately thought of the Vintage Blue Collection from glitz Design!

My first project was a card for the graduate:
I used Vintage Blue Motif paper along with a Vintage Blue Cardstock Title Sticker for the base of the card.  The sticker's sentiment, "Celebrate the Sweet Life" is perfect for a graduation!!
I added some lace, Tim Holtz Ideology metal embellishments and button to finish the card.

Supplies used:
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Paper: Motif
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Cardstock Stickers: Titles
Other Supplies:
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock, For the Graduate Stamps, Parisian Lace Doily Die; Hand Dyed Seam Binding; Prima Lace; Tim Holtz Ideaology Embellishments; Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink

I also created a "Congrats Grad" banner using the Vintage Blue Polka Papers:
The Vintage Blue Polka Paper is Blue on one side and Gold on the back side.  Absolutely Perfect!!!  I cut two sizes of banners and adhered the gold onto the blue banner.  I cut out the letters using my Cricut machine and I added some Melissa Frances Tissue Paper Garland and die-cut doily.
I used my Crop-o-dile to punch holes in the corners of each pennant and tied the pennants together with button twine.  I also added a die-cut star to separate the two words in the banner.
I hung the banner in the hallway entrance and it made our dining room very fun and festive!

Supplies used:
Glitz Design Vintage Blue Polka Papers
Melissa Frances Tissue Paper Garland
Papertrey Ink Rustic cream paper and StarDie, Banner Die and Parisian Lace Doily Die
Cricut Machine and A Child's Year Cartridge

Thanks for stopping by!!
Wishing you a very Glitzy Day,

Christmas banners for the front of the store and smaller banners to tie to your company vehicles are great attention getters and can be reused for years to come.
