Freshly Made Sketches #33

Hello friends! Tonight I am entering this card in the Freshly Mades Sketches #33 based on the sketch from Jen Mitchell below.  We have several family members and friends graduating this year (including my son - gulp!) so getting my cards done for all of them has been foremost on my mind this past week. This card covers four of my family member's school colors.  I also made several more with a black and white theme for all of the other graduates.  This sketch was a great one to use for mass producing cards!

Here is the inside of the card - that black piece is actually a pocket I created that a gift card (or cash) can slip right into (sorry, I didn't have a g.c. or cash on hand to pop in there to show you how it looks - that is the next thing I need to get done!).  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. 

Gonna make this a short post tonight as I promised myself I would get to bed at a decent hour for a change.  Even though this card has several layers it will still only need one stamp and no special handling to pop in the mail.  Thanks so much for stopping by - I'm sure glad you did. I hope you liked my card and saw something that inspired you.

Supplies (all from Stampin Up!):  Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Not Quite Navy and Basic Black.  Patterned paper - Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (Regals collection - Cherry Cobbler stripes, and Neutrals collection - black dots).  Sentiment is from Word Play.  Graduation caps were printed from My Digital Studio. I colored the sentiment with my Stampin Write markers using Basic Grey, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler.  I sponged a little Not Quite Navy around the circle with a finger dauber.  I used the 2 1/2" circle punch for the sentiment.  The sentiment inside is from a retired set - embossed with white embossing powder.


  1. Cute card Danielle, congrats on your son's graduation. My good friend has her youngest son graduating this year and she is in disbelief!! Thank you for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. What a great card for the graduates! And I'm pretty sure they'll love what's on the inside! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Thanks ladies! When my son found out that was a money pocket inside he went from "that's nice Mom" to "Cool!" - funny how that changed his perspective :o)

  4. Great inside and out! Perfect sentiment for graduation!


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. It makes my day happier! Hugs!
