Here is a card I made for my husband's cousin's son's graduation last month (boy, that wasn't easy to say!):
The stamp set is My Acrylix Congrats Graduate. I also used our Chevron Embossing Folder to give some dimension. The shape was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, and I finished it off with Baker's Twine and an embellishment from the Pro Player collection (retired). Ink colors were Whisper and Black. I liked the clean look of only black and white and whisper.
