Graduation Cards

>> Tuesday, May 8, 2018

Hi Everyone,

I'm in graduation card making mode right now and I have a couple of my most recent makes to share with you.  Since they both have the same layout, I tried to be a little creative in the stamps that I used.

A new sentiment from DRS Designs is Let the Adventure Begin and instead of pairing it with a traditional graduation image on the front, I used the Hot Air Balloon.  I colored up and fussy cut three of them, and attached them with dimensional foam tape to and embossed cloud background.  The sentiment was heat embossed, although I don't think it shows up in the photo.

I carried the Hot Air Balloons inside along with the Successful Future Grad Greeting.

I couldn't resist making another card using the adorable Graduation Pig!  He's definitely a new favorite of mine :)

I created some patterned paper using the Easy Dot Background and the Splatter Background stamp in green and yellow ink.  I punched out 3 holes and framed them out in black, and stamped and colored up the pig three times.  I added them behind the windows in fun positons, attaching the top one using a "Wobble".  It's a plastic spiral that gives him dimension, so it looks like he's bursting out.  And if you flick him with your finger, he moves back and forth.

I finished up the card using the perfect sentiment, Go Hog Wild!

Be sure to visit DRS Designs for all of these stamps and much more too!

Have a great day :)

These are fab grad cards, Karin! LOVE those hot air balloon & your inside greeting is perfect w/ the outside one. Hmm..I don't think I have that one & I thought I had almost all of them. Your piggies are so fun & they look like they're having a blast.
