Graduation Cards

  I can't believe the school year is almost over. Now that I am a little older, it seems like time is flying by way too fast. My 2 Little ones will be going to pre-school this fall. Now you know that I will have the water works going. Anyways, My Mother and Mother-in-Law needed some graduations cards. So this is what I came up with. I saw this on Vickey Lopez's blog and I altered it just a bit. You can visit her blog at She has some really great work on her blog, stop by and leave her some love.

So I was lucky that 2 cards were going to be the same colors, and the other is for a UNLV graduation.
I did add a little bling just for some extra something something lol. I love bling, can you tell. For the cap on the front of the card I used a 1 3/8, and 1 1/4 SU square punch and put a brad in the smaller square. I also divided them up with some dimensionals so you can see the 2 layers. The Stamp sets I used were SU Word Play, Teeny Tiny Wishes, and Curly Cute. I also used SU Modern Label and Word Window punches. For the inside I used the popular SU Top Note Die, I cut 6 in black card stock and 3 in white card stock. I used a great layering trick I have seem on many blogs. I cut each black top note in half the long way and then another top note the short way. When you put all the layers together it looks like a shadowed top note. I just love this little trick.
  I hope the Graduates like my cards, and have a very successful future, Best wishes to you all.

Thank you for stopping by today, and have a great Crafternoon.
