A graduation challenge

Been over a month again. Just can't seem to find the time to post, or enter challenges. Hopefully life will slow down a bit now and I can get back to card making and posting.

Today I have the graduation Box card I made for my Grandaughter.


The school colors are red and white-and I just happened to have some red & white patterned papers - a 4x6 pad I purchased at a rummage sale, so I have no idea what the brand is-but it's very nice paper. (the pack had these designs in about 5 different colors!)

When folded flat the card is A2 size, and opens to this cute little box. The sentiment is from Art Impressions-Reach for the Stars. I used various dies, including Sweet & Sassy Congrats Grad (cap & scroll), MFT Lucky Stars and L'il Inkers Balloon and swirl dies. As well as a couple of stickers from my graduation embellishments stash:)

Comments are always welcome. Hope you have a great day!

A couple graduation cards

It's been a long time since I posted on my blog! I'm challenging myself to get back into the habit of blogging my cards again-maybe even enter a few challenges again. Anyway..............

I had graduation cards left from last year, most of which I have at a little local restaurant for sale. I kept 2 home, just in case! (Didn't think I had any graduates other than my granddaughter and she gets a special card) Well, my daughter used those 2 cards, which meant I had to come up with 2 more quick when I got a couple of late announcements. So these are quick and simple cards.

I used the Impression Obsession "Hats Off to you" die, cut them out in blue and black. The base of both cards is some royal blue cardstock-bazzil, I believe. For the background I used a 4" x 5.25" piece of Cougar 80# white cardstock and the Darice mortarboard embossing folder. I highlighted the hats with a Clear Wink of Stella marker. The sentiment is stamped with Momento Blue Danube ink on Cougar, and die cut. The dies are Spellbinders-just not sure what ones they are!
