On Your Birthday...

>> Thursday, May 31, 2018

Good morning!

Here is a simple graduation card!
I embossed the stars with gold embossing and silver embossing powders.
The hat is embossed with silver and the sentiment is
embossed with both silver and gold.

My next card is a tropical Birthday card.
It is an easel card and I've shown both closed and open views.
I used DRS stamps: Flower Border 1076H, 4 in 1 Shells 473F
I used a Spellbinder nesting die for the top cut out and for the sentiment.
I also used a palm tree die from Joy Dies and my "wave" is a die from Penny Black.
I divided the sentiment into two parts.  I stamped the flowers twice and used about 1 1/2 of the two and also cut them into a coupe pieces to get the curve.

I showed how to do this type of easel card a few weeks ago with wedding cards, find it here:

Thanks for visiting today!

Awesome cards once again, Robin. The first one is such a great grad card with the starts and focus on the hat. The second is such a fun shape and some super fun elements and colors. Beautiful work!

I love the embossing on your graduation card! It's beautiful and elevates it from an ordinary CAS card :) I love the tropical easel card too! Your flowers are gorgeous and those palm trees are super fun! Makes me want to go on a Hawaiian vacation!

Beautiful cards, Robin. I really like the gold & silver embossing on the first card. Your easel card is awesome! Love the curve of flowers, so creative & fun!

Wonderful cards Robin!! Your star background on the grad card is really boggling my brain :) The angle just so doesn't look like a rectangle till I tilt my head. Love how you embossed the mortarboard too. Can even begin to tell you how cool your tropical birthday card is - you are just the queen of the easel card!!

These are so fun, Robin! I love the scattered stars on your grad card. For such a 'simple' card, it's just stunning.
