A Well Traveled Graduation – by Barb Schram

Published by at 8 00 am under Carta Bella,Graduation,JustRite Products

This weekend is graduation weekend in our area with local open houses running for all three days.  Always a fun weekend!  Barb has created an interesting grad card today for a young man, complete with ribbon and bows, but still very masculine!  Love her choices on this project!


Lots of interest, still very masculine.

You can see the full post on Barb’s blog here.

Barb used:

Paper:  Well Traveled by Carta Bella

Chipboard:  Well Traveled by Carta Bella

Stamps:  Celebration Labels One and Brackets One (for inside sentiment)

Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black

Ribbon:  May Arts 5/8″ Faux Canvas – Burgundy; May Arts 3/16″ Solid Stitched Center – Black and 36 Antique Gold

Miscellaneous:  1/8″ Scor Tape (to adhere narrow ribbon)


Love the festive inside with the few small chipboard pieces added.

The sentiment is from JustRite’s Celebrations Labels One and Brackets One.

All items available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, as linked.


Here’s a quick visual of what Barb used:

If you enjoyed today’s project and the Well Traveled Collection, please be sure to stop back in tomorrow morning.  Barb will have four (yes, 4) Father’s Day cards to share using this same pad and chipboard — so easy and so appealing!

Personally, I LOVE cards made with paper and matching chipboard — fun, quick, easy and always perfectly coordinated!  Can’t beat that!
