Graduation from Columbia University

My friend's grandson-in-law received his phD from Columbia this week. His contribution to the world had something to do with salt. So, I used their colors (blue and white) and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter paper, Whisper White and Marina Mist to make his card. The stamps I used are from March 2016 Paper Pumpkin. The dots are from the Brights Enamel Dots. I am entering this in two challenges. SUO Challenge #161 - Celebrations of All Kinds! and the Try Stamping on Tuesday #296. TSOT or Not! #296. Here's their sketch...

and here's my version...

and for the inside...

I found this on Pinterest and changed it just a wee bit. Thanks for looking!


  1. Karen, this is a nice graduation card. I like the color because I think it would work for both a male or female grad. Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week! Crystal

  2. Nice clean & simple take on this week's TSOT challenge #294, Karen. I like the way you curved the blue mat,,, makes your card really stand out!
