Graduation Cards

Hey Friends!

Just quickly dropping off some graduation cards I made for a customer. This is the fastest I have EVER created cards! Could it be I am starting to find my Card Mojo? It impressed me! They are not terribly fussy...but simple and hopefully elegant. 

 First Card:

 Second Card:

The Recipe
  1. For both cards I used patterned paper from the DCWV High School Stack.
  2. For the first card (Silver and black) I stamped the outside and inside sentiments with VersaMark ink and embossed with Glitter Finish Silver and Opaque Finish Charcoal Zing! Embossing Powders. I also stamped and embossed the graduation cap and "handmade" stamp on back the same way.
  3. For the second card (multicolored) I adhered graduation vellum sticker sentiments to coordinating solid card stock that I cut and embossed with a rectangle spellbinders die. I stamped the diploma on the front of the card with VersaMark and embossed with Opaque Finish Charcoal Zing! embossing powder.
  4. Both cards were inked with Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink as I thought appropriate. 
That's it! Quick, easy and pretty! I think I may be getting the hang of card making! LOL Let me not say that too loud! LOL 

Thanks for Looking,
