Graduation cards



I needed to make some quick graduation cards for a craft show I'm in this weekend. If you are in the Twin Cities come by the Dakota County Fairgrounds on Saturday or Sunday for this 1st Annual Craft show in conjunction with the Midwest Mopars in the Park National Car Show and Swap meet.

Back to the card - I used the Year by Year stamp set. I don't own a separate graduation stamp set so this was just the ticket with the gradution cap. I made them in color combinations of summer sun, black and white, real red, black and white, brilliant blue, black and white and just black and white. I'm hoping to hit on some school colors. The card is a 6 x 6 piece of cardstock folded in half to make a 3 x 6 card. Just right for those money cards. I tied ribbon around the center, popped the image up on stampin' dimensionals and stamped congratulations from my Hugs and Wishes stamp set.

In addition to the craft show, my son has a soccer tournament and my other son has a soccer game. My daughter's last day of 8th grade is today. Whew! Where did that time go? Her graduation is Tuesday night. Life keeps roaring by. Have a good one!
