It's graduation time

It's graduation time around here.  Not for me, or anyone in my household, but plenty of those we know and love.  From my niece and cousin's daughter, to friends daughters, we have 5 graduation parties to attend this weekend.  All that said, I needed 5 graduation cards.  And, they couldn't be a plain old ordinary card now could they?  Well, they could have been, but what's the fun in that!

First, I need to mention that I used contraband designer paper on these cards.  Gasp!  Also, I've used some retired colors to make the cards match as close as I could to the school colors.  I'm glad I had some of that lying around.

I need to give credit here to Fran Sabad for the design of this card.  It was her inspiration (and she's made a BUNCH of different themed cards using this idea) that caused me to bite the bullet and purchase the Pop 'n Cuts base die and the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts insert.  Great news!  They'll be hang ing around even after the Spring catalog ends on May 31st as they will be in the new catalog!  Yeah!

I should mention that I made a gift card envelope and attached it to the bottom of the inside of the card. It was super, duper fast using the Simply Scored tool and the diagonal plate.
