So far I have three graduation cards to get done this week. Here is the first one.
I came across a beautiful card done by Marlene over at the Scrappin' Cookie last year. I took inspiration from her wonderful design and came up with this version.
I found the digi stamp online over at Whimsey Stamps. I first printed the sentiment on card stock to the size I thought would be right for the card. I then positioned it on my cutting mat so it matched up where I had placed the scallop mat on my gyspy screen. With much luck, it cut perfectly the first time..yup, I can hardly believe it. I think this is the first time ever I did not have to print extras and re-cut and re-cut and re-cut before I get it all lined up correctly. I know you all can relate!
Oh, the hat- well that was my little treat in the mail on Monday. It's the new My Creative Time Here's Lookin' at You stamp and die set. Love it!
I will be back later with my other grad cards. Not sure what I am going to do yet, but need to start cutting something.
I see Fantabulous Cricut also has a challenge this week for Graduation projects as does My Craft Spot, and a green challenge at Little Scrap Pieces where I will be linking up. You should too!
