Congratulations, Grad!!

My I’ve Been CASEd by Kelly Latevola post is HERE!!!

I am literally sprinting in to share a graduation card I made:


It is a 6″ by 3″ card -designed for a #9 sized envelope (3  7/8″ by 8  7/8″)

To create this I used a scrap of graduation paper from Imaginesce – trimmed it to 5  3/4 by 2  3/4 inches.  Stamped the sentiment in Versafine – Onyx Black and used Clear ultra fine embossing powder. The sentiment comes from an old SU! set called Tassel Time!! I used a piece of gold vellum (from my stash) to make a banner and used a mini stapler to add it to my card!!

I am linking this card up to:


Week 150 - Graduation

The link up closes in about an hour – so that is the reason I am sprinting with this post!!

Have a happy day and be sure to see the post about where I was CASEd by the fabulous, talented and lovely Kelly Latevola!!!

See you soon!!!

    Loving the size and shape of this card, Taunya. I usually stick with the “usual” 4 x 5 1/2″. LOL! This is perfect for graduations with its classic color scheme and great banner. So celebratory!
