Grad cards

For some reason we have lots of graduations to attend this year.  I haven't got an invite yet, but know of at least seven!  I started by making a few with my new edge punch.

The saying below is so appropriate, it's a rub-on from Close To My Heart.

Then I used some Webster's Pages 6x6 vellum on a couple girl cards.  The only way to stamp on that, is with Stazon ink.  I did have to touch it up with a black gel ink pen too. 

I love that the vellum said "image" & "live your dreams"!

I was so glad I got the black flowers at Hobby Lobby with my mom & sister last week.  I've been looking for black & brown for a while! 

I love doing the long cards for graduations.  You can buy the envelops anywhere & they give you a different shape that is fun to work on.  Plus it just seems like a better size to fit money or a check in. 

I did some embossing on two.  The glossy texture adds a little flair to my basic designs.

I hope I've inspired some of you to get crackin' on those graduation cards now!
