Graduation or Recital Card with Stampin' Up! You Are Beautiful

Shining-light-you-are-beautifulThis week on Ink and Inspirations, we will spotlight the new You Are Beautiful stamp set from Stampin' Up! 

When I first looked through the catalog, this stamp set was added to my must-have list.  The sentiments clinched it for me!  The verse from Proverbs and the sentiment used on today's card are favorites.

With it being graduation and recital season, this shining light sentiment is perfectly paired with the colorful Full of Life Designer Series Paper.  This color burst image was trimmed down to fit the front of the card base with Crushed Curry being the color of choice for the card stock.

Shining-light-you-are-beautiful-2

The designer paper that covers the front of the card base in from the Full of Life collection.  The patterns and colors in this set of papers  are amazing.  This "burst of color" design was trimmed down from the 6 " x 6" piece to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I trimmed a little from each side to center the burst and get it down to size.

The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie on a Basic White Stylish Shapes circle with another in Crushed Curry as the mat.  Our Rhinestone Basic Jewels add the finishing touch.

This card would be suitable for a graduate or even for a sweet note for those children or grandchildren participating in a end of year recital. 

Mark your calendars to join us for our Thursday morning LIVE stream on Facebook or YouTube!  We will be creating with the You Are Beautiful set.  Join us at 11 am ET, 10 am CT, 9 am MT, 8 am PT.  See you then!
