Pure Gumption Graduation Picture Frame

Need the perfect graduation gift?
How about a picture frame to hold
the memories of the big day.
This is a wooden frame bought at
a craft store for $1. I painted it with
some black acrylic chalkboard paint.

Once the paint dried, I rubbed my Embossing
Buddy on the frame where the sentiment
was going to be placed, inked the
sentiment with a VersaMark ink pad
and stamped it directly onto the frame.
Then I applied Whisper White dry embossing
Powder and heat embossed the sentiment.
The Embossing Buddy powder then just
gets wiped off with a wet paper towel.

The graduation cap is also heat embossed
in Basic Black. I added a rhinestone to the
top for a little more bling. (You can never
have too much sparkle!)

The scallop circle punch and year numbers
use the Silver Glimmer paper and are adhered
with Tombow glue.

I think you'll see more posts from me
using these little frames. They're so fun
to embellish!
