My brother-in-law graduated from Rio Grande University with his Master's Degree last weekend.  I thought I had another week, but looks like I'll be late with his graduation card.  Oops.
I wanted a subtle striped background so I stamped the stripes in versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It's the perfect affect I was looking for and it really just makes you want to touch it.

Stamps: PTI "Distressed Stripes" and "Fresh Alphabet"; Stamp Fairy "Barry Graduation" free digi
