CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #4

This weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is all about graduation!  I have a couple cards here to share with you that I made for some of my customers this year!


Graduation cards are so fun to make!  Thinking about the kiddos who are getting them and where they are in their life!  On to new places and new things!  Personalizing these cards to the school color makes them even more fun!  And really, our town has good colors...which helps! 

So here is my first CAS, elegant, girly kinda, grad card!

I love the CAS style with that Linen in the background...YES I want to put that into every card!!

Then I stamped the date to make it even more specific!  And some bling....doesn't hurt!  hehe!

This is my favorite grad sentiment!  I stamped this in every card!  I have one more card that I made tons of!  This one I used the letters I cut with my Cricut as the focal point....

Shouldn't that be an "I" instead of a "B"...with a little orange too? LOL!!! :) Seriously, these are great CAS cards and that sentiment on the inside is the one I always use too, I just love the font mixture! The flourish is a great accent too!

PERFECT CAS cards and just one thing how the heck did you get those numbers to line up so perfectly ..... do you know last year when I got my set I threw it across the room because I could not get it to work out with the numbers ......... OR is this from a different set. NO MATTER PERFECT and I do love the 2011 on the side of the B ......

I love both of these cards. Wish I had the background stamp on the first card! ;D

Andrea M said...

LOVE these cards!! That linen impression plate ROCKS (I've had to put it down…and back away slowly….). Wonderful grad cards! I love how you've used the flourish on the first too!

Suzanne said...

So beautiful, Laurie! I love the flourish behind the letter with the tiny year. Awesome job!

Marlena M. said...

Very classy. Perfect for male or female! ;)

Karolyn at Paper Therapy said...

Laurie, both of these projects are outstanding! I adore that sentiment that you've stamped on the inside. The font on that baby is delicious. My fave of the two is definitely the girlier one, but both are phenomenal!
