"Dream" Graduation Card

Since I got this stamp set several months ago, I've been itching to use it.  I love its simplicity, and the possibilities it offers.

I stamped the feathers on black cardstock with Versamark, and embossed with white embossing powder, and voila! -- my own patterned paper!

I used this to make this graduation card for a friend who will be completing her advanced degree in a few months.

I just stamped and embossed the sentiment in watercolor paper using Versamark and white embossing powder, and then die-cut the feathers in  using the corresponding dies .  I colored the feathers in two shades of purple using Tim Holtz Distress Markers (I recently got the set and I'm loving it!!!).

Here is a complete list of products that I've used, with links to where you can buy them:
