You Did It! Whimsical Graduation Cards with Essentials by Ellen

Hi Friends! Can you believe it’s one more day until April?! Spring is in the air which also means it’s getting close to Graduation Time. This we’re celebrating the end of elementary school so I wanted to create some whimsical Graduation Cards for my daughter as we hug and cheer her on as she crosses into Middle School. She has a pretty silly-slapstick sense of humor, so my number one goal was to create cards that would make her smile and maybe get one of those “Mom, are you kidding me…?!” expressions…so the quirkier & “punnier” the better. I can’t wait to ask her “Why did the chicken cross the rainbow?” LOL 

I started both cards with a cheerful stamped rainbow from the Better Days Ahead Stamp Set and as the focal point. Then I went to my Essentials by Ellen Stamp Collection to find cute critters that could help celebrate her big milestone. I chose the Chicken Family from the Good Egg Stamp Set and Bigfoot from the Lil’ ‘Squatch Stamp Set. For extra whimsy, I colored the edges of the critters in rainbow Copic colors. I added the You Did It Sentiment from the That Thing You Did Stamp Set. For added *pun*, I included the You Da Beast to the BigFoot Graduation Card. To finish the Rainbow Fun Graduation Cards, I added my favorite Hai Supply Black Star Sequins
