Congratulations, Graduate!

Today we have a super sketch over at Create with Connie and Mary –

I was really inspired by it. As we know, graduation season will be starting next month (I know, right? You didn’t realize it, did you!?). I decided to get to work on grads ideas! I have made two recently, here is one of them using our sketch this week –

How fun and fresh and modern is this???

…..and, when you open it, it’s a gift card holder too! I used the same size Whisper White panel as the front, this time, I only adhered it to three side leaving the left side open to slide something fun in the pocket. Use Tear & tape for this for the extra strong bond.

TIP : if you’re adding a gift card, place the gift card down first then adhere the panel. That way, the gift card will slid out easily.

I can wait to create more of these. Maybe in local school colors? This is just a great design to create with!

Best. Card. Ever. Watercooler. Wednesday. #111.

Ahhhh, time for great inspiration from Watercooler Wednesday!

Marsha chose a favorite for me.

Masculine theme. And, anything goes!

I guess I was thinking’ of the sweet hubs when I created this –

……because he is. The. Best. Guy. Ever.

It’s a lot of silver foil. It doesn’t photograph well. But. In person, awesome! I am totally a fan of this background! It’s one of those thicker embossing folders. I hadn’t used it yet…….story of a crafters life, right?

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Sentiments, Urban Underground DSP, Hexagons Dynamic EF, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, WWC, masculineThe heart was in my leftover box and it was just meant to be on this card! It’s bold. It’s balance. It was a scrap!

Lots and lots of variety. It’s on the last page of the Occasions mini and probably overlooked as that catalog has so many wonderful products in it!

Guy card just need to be simple and straight to the point.
