Graduation Banner

Hello again it's Terri from http://www.scrappinwiththebug.blogspot.com/ bringing you a fun graduation banner.
A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I would make a banner for her daughter who is graduation from high school. The colors are royal blue and silver. She just gave me a size wanted and the name and told me I had free rain for the rest.

I went with the traditional Congratulations and her name then I added some additional banners w/ the fun graduate, diploma, class of and a few little stars.

Banners were cut at 5" w/ the shadow feature from Birthday Bash
The letters were all cut from Something to Remember at 3" - 3.2" I used my gypsy to size them accordingly.
I also did the shadow function with those.
The girl was from Paper dolls - and I used the "hide" feature so I could stamp some PKS faces on them. She was cut at 3.5"

The Class of 2013- I did again with the gypsy and sized the letters at 1.6 and welded them together.

The diploma was cut at 1.5" from Wrap it up. (You know those cartridges you forget about when buy them having awesome fun features).

I since she only wanted Royal Blue and silver I pop dotted the letters up so they would really stand out on the banner.

The paper is Cord'inations - royal blue and some light weight silver paper from bazzill.

Machine used: Gypsy, and Expression
Cartridges: Birthday Bash, Paper dolls, Something to Remember, Wrap it up
