Hats Off to the Grads + Giveaway {Avery Elle}

Hello friends!

TGIF! I am on the Avery Elle blog today with a graduation card that I made using the Hats Off stamp set and dies. All my Avery Elle supplies are linked below. 

I try not to play favorites with my Avery Elle stamps (I love them all!), but I have to say that the Hats Off set is one of my favorites from the CHA release- it's such a unique set that lends itself to so many occasions.  My card is all about the grads and I paired the Hats Off stamp and die set with the Number Balloons Ellements die for a fun and festive look.

I stamped the hands and hats onto white card stock, colored this with Copic markers and die cut the shapes,  Next I die cut the number balloons from shiny gold card stock and secured a bit of gold thread to each number to act as the balloon string.  I adhered the numbers to a panel of white card stock and added the hats and hands- using foam tape to adhere both the hands and secure the gold thread to the card.  I mounted the finished panel onto a note card from the Midnight Collection note card set.


As I mentioned earlier, this set is one of my favs and I just so happen to have an extra set to give away today.  Just leave me a comment by Monday evening at 9 p.m. ET for a chance to win. I'll announce the winner on Tuesday.  

Well that's all for me today, but be sure to stop by the Avery Elle blog for even more inspiration from the Avery Elle design team!
