Way to go - Graduation card #1

Tuesday May 29, 2018
Hello and I am on another kick on making cards and this time they are Graduation cards. I have probably 7-10 to make.. Not sure yet, but I like this style I made so I think I will do them like this. Sweet and simple.  This is more feminine.
Quite some time ago I was over at my stamping and Stampin Up demo best friends house and I saw this sentiment and a congrats so I stamped up 7 of them. So that's why I am thinking at least 7 cards.. I saved them.. but funny couldn't remember where I put them. I'd say this was probably a year ago.. Well I am getting rid of some wooden stamps. I am clearing out about 75% of them (which are hundreds). They are ones I don't use and don't care for so I was boxing them up and just cleaning up and saw this little black file stand that is on a dresser I keep post it notes in and sure enough there they were.. Woo hoo that saved the day. So now it's just a matter of finding the right papers and creating.
For this card I used some designer paper which I don't know who it's by.. I took some type paper and cut a small rectangle and rolled it up over a paint brush and glued the edge and wrapped a ribbon around it and added this to the card. I debated adding gems or Nuvo drops but decided to just keep it CAS.
