I am happy to share a card that my daughter & downline member made for a graduation.  Beth hit it out of the park with her masculine card.

Blue Ribbon grduation

The combination of Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso and an accent of basic black screams masculine.  Notice the sublty sanded ridges that were created with the Stripes Embossing Folder on the Early Espresso Coordination cardstock.  Although Beth used some ribbon, it just enhances her color palette and the knot balances the design.  The Labels Collection Framelits created the perfect stage for her "blue ribbon".

Blue Ribbon Close Up

The Blue Ribbon stamp set is a good all purpose set that allow you to enhance the middle of the ribbon anyway you would like.  It has inserts appropriate for birthday , congratulations or graduation to list a few of the possibilities.

Thanks Beth for sharing your card with us!
