I really liked this card for a male…. it could be for either but it looked masculine to me… well except for the sequins… I know that’s a new trend but I am not too interested in it… I did use sequins loose in a card between sheets of acetate… but while this is nice I would probably have used cords… notice too how she uses the spongeing to rub light color around on the paper .ha… just watched her video again and she doesn’t show doing that but she did on this one anyway…lol  also she made an extra layer to cut out only part of the banners…HINT/TIP well Lazy stamper here…says since you are going to layer the CONGRATULATIONS on top of the flap why not just cut out the full banner’s and layer them then place them on the flap and cut off the excess on the far left side and then layer the congratulations on top …just seems easier and less thinking like how far in to cut the dies….but either way it makes a really cute card….she especially does this on white paper but she does it on colored paper too and while its a simple technique it makes such a difference in making the card have more dimension… watch her video for complete directions and the blue link above will take you right to it…

JULIE’S BLOG SPOT…how to cut a grad cap …I found this and thought it would be fun to share but mostly I was so blown away by the simple idea of sticking a small piece of  card stock onto a post it note so we could PUNCH IT AGAIN… how many times have I tried to get a small piece into the punch in just the right place so that I could alter it with another punch… such a simple Idea can’t believe I never thought to try it… so as my favorite CALLIGRAPHY teach CAROL DU BOSCH would say…” WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION..all of that said the cap is really cute too… I will try to post the link to the orgiami fold for grad cap.

ANOTHER type of card for GRADUATION…I had posted this card on the 5th of May..its DAWN’S TWIST TURN CARD..this is the one I have used several times as a graduation card…and I can use either stickers for the grad cap or I can make my own grad cap using the technique from above on JULIE’S BLOG SPOT…so this one is one more option for those grads you have coming up..

LAST ONE...DAWN’S TWISTED GIFT CARD HOLDER..I posted this one on May 3rd 2013…wow..CAN’T BELIEVE ITS BEEN THAT LONG… anyway click it up and check it out the advantage to this one is that while each of the others you can slip a gift card into the envelope with the card ..this one actually has a pocket that will hold the card. It also works great for birthdays.

WHY YOU BUY AN IPHONE…this is only funny cause the guy survived..well maybe not funny at all but I have a very black sense of humor so it made me giggle…. He really was shot with a shotgun but a lot of it hit his phone… although he was wounded he did survive. Click the blue link if you want to read more.



Well I think that will do it for this post… just wanted you to have a chance to see some graduation cards for any family or friends that you need cards.

AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY ….wire headed cyber toad…aka kath
