Quick & Easy Graduation Cards

I needed to whip up a bunch of graduation cards last weekend for my daughter’s students and my mind went immediately to the Large Letter Framelits Dies (1414712) that are part of the Last Chance List. I’m really going to miss the Letters for You stamp set (141968) and these coordinating dies since they make fast cards that are easily customizable to suit your needs.

Here is what I came up with

I reached for my Brights Designer Series Paper Stack (Last Chance 146964) since I needed multiples – school colors are red and black, a very common due here in Georgia. LOL!

Want to make some for yourself? With our Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stacks it’s soooo easy to make a bunch simply pick a family that has the color you need and team it up with the 2nd color using the dies!

Here is a quick tutorial for you with the complete supply list, sorry no video today I’m still cleaning up from my Spring Consignment Sale.

Many of these items are on the Last Chance List and are only available while supplies last. If you haven’t already taken a look, why not stop by and look at what is retiring now so you don’t miss out?

Swan Lake

Like swans? If so you’re going to like this wonderful little set found in the Occasions Catalog on page 53. This set not only contains charming images, but also has some wonderful sentiments. I was soooo excited when I won this set at On Stage in Atlanta last November after all who can resist the little ducklings? It reminds me of the days when my mother would all take us to Capital Court around Easter to see the decorations and the chicks and ducklings hatch. (If I remember correctly they were in an even bigger decorated egg of all things! Ah, well that was a long time ago…)

So today I’m sharing two cards that I received in my swap using this stamp set. This first card was given to me by Gina. I love the way she used our different patterns from the Brights Collection Paper Stack for this card.

The card swings open to  show you these cute little ducklings and sentiment.

And here is another card also done in Brights, but this time using the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (141630).

And here a couple more wonderful cards made with our FREE Sale-a-bration stamp sets.

This first one uses the So Very Much stamp set and the Carried Away Designer Series Paper. Deborah cut the little hot air balloons to add to the corner with the Night of Navy Solid Bakers Twine.

And this card for Lorrie uses the elegant set Delicate Details and also uses the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration choices.

It’s a lot of fun to see how the same product, this time Designer Series paper, can be used so many different ways.
