 We have need of several congratulation cards, so I had to take some time yesterday to get them made. It was nice to have a little time for card making. I've been spending a fair amount of time at my mom and dad's house, sorting through their things. We're still trying to decide what to do with them. I think I'm leaning towards an estate sale, but I'm not sure yet.

At any rate, here are two graduation cards I made. They are basically the same but with different colors. This first one is for a grandson who is "graduating" from pre-school to kindergarten. The colors in the picture are not very true, but ... The cap is actually a blue foil. It is cut with Lifestyle Crafts dies. The stamping was done with a Stampin' Up! stamp. I cut the circles with Spellbinders dies. The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. I matted with matching blue cardstock. The circles and the hat are mounted on foam squares.

This second card is the same except for the colors. The hat is black with a red tassel. The scalloped circle is red, also. It looks burgundy in the picture, but it truly is red:)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

"CONGRATS" to you, Lynette, on creating cute graduation cards!

Ideal and awesome grad cards, Lynette. You have the perfect die and embossing folder there. I was taken by surprise to learn that a friend's grandson was graduating high school this year and ended up buying a card. First card I've bought in ages. I know you must be very busy with your mom and dad's things. That's a big job. Hope you're okay.

Great cards, Lynette! It always makes it more personal when you use the school colors. Great idea!

What a lovely card for a graduate.
Can you tell me the name of the
stampin up stamp that you used?
I need to make several cards for
my son's friends that are graduating
and I love this sentiment.

Thank you for sharing all the
awesome cards that you create.
