Congrats '15



This week's CAS(e) this Sketch almost had me stumped...but I'm glad I kept thinking about it!  There will be several more graduation cards popping up on my blog over the next few days, and I love how this one turned out.  My Cricut has been getting use by my cutting out little graduation caps and it was used to cut out these super tall numbers to use as a mask for this card.  Think this design will go into mass production next year when I need a ton of graduation cards. In real life the distress inks are a bit more vibrant.  What I like is that I could easily turn this into a thank you card too.  My mind is starting to plan for Ryan's graduation next year. Can you tell?!

I'm having one of those V8 moments, Lynn ... great idea to use your Cricut machine to cut those large numbers! Pretty wonderful sponging, too, my friend! Thanks for adding this lovely to the gallery this week!

This is a perfect graduation card, especially for mass production, Lynn. The colors could change according to the recipient or their school.

My comments are a bit rare lately, sorry. But I always visit your blog when I see a new card in my sidebar (-:
This is a fabulous design, Lynn! Would be perfect for a birthday card too.
