Graduation Announcements for a Neighbor

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I was asked to create a graduation announcement for my neighbors daughter.
I got together with them and we came up with colors, card ideas, the style she wanted and how many she would need (20).

Laynas school colors are Orange and Black and she wanted something with circles.

This is what we came up with;

 I used the Mini Treat Bag Die to make the bag, using 1 3/8", 1" and the 1/2" Circle Punches.
The 2015 focal piece took three steps. First I stamped the "Class of"   portion of the stamp in Tangelo Twist, then punched it out with a 2" punch. I added a 1/2" strip of Tangelo Twist across the middle of the circle. Next, I stamped the "2015" in Basic Black and cut it out and attached it to the 2" circle. If the stamped image didn't come out as nicely as I wanted I used a blending pen to smooth the ink out. There is a separate piece of orange glimmer paper attached to the top of the bag for some bling. I found the ribbon and the glimmer paper at my local craft store.

Here is a look at the inside pull out piece;

The announcement info was printed on to a piece of vellum and stapled to a piece of Whisper White card stock. I attached the polka dot bow to the vellum piece with glue dots.  This kept me busy for several days sorry no Sketch Frenzy Friday post today. I have to get back in the garden!
