Be Patient with my blog as it is a work in progress for the next few days. I have a header I like and a blinkie. So now I need to completer the rest of the template. I am learning PS5 as I do this so it may take a few days. Happy Crafting ~~Misty

Oh Happy Day - Graduation Card

This is for the Graduation project over at Sweet Sassy Diva!!! http://www.sweetsassydiva.com/ What an amazing design team we have over there. If you have not checked it out go over and see the fabulous inspiration we all have to share.









I loved this project because I have an amazing friend who just graduated. She has worked so hard to get to this point and is now about to have a new baby. I am very proud of her. I made this card to give her with a gift card.









I used Daisy Bucket Designs Patterned Paper from the In the Meadow collection. This paper is Finley. I also used DCWV card stock.







The ink in Quick quotes and gel pen. I inked every edge. I popped up the graduation cap to give the card added dimension.




The cartridges are Tags Bags Boxes and More for the tag at 4.8 inches x 3. The scallop circle is from Easter 2010 at 3 1/2. The graduation cap is from A child's year at 2 1/2 inches.




The ribbon is from JoAnne's.







I used my gypsy to cut all the pieces. I am in love with my gypsy. Even though my cartridges are right behind me on their lovely shelves I love not having to search one out and switch the carts on the machine. I can just pop the item into search and tada onto the mat ready to be cut.
