non traditional grad card


Who says a grad card has to have a cap or gown on it?? It is all about what is inside anyway.... isn't it??? I made this card for my cousins daughters graduation. very very quick I easy.
The paper is berry Sorbet from Paper Trey. I embossed large flowers on the paper with my big kick & the Flower rings embosser. I also embossed the white glossy texture paper with the flower #4 mat. I think if you click on the photo you can actually see it better. I found these cute little flower brads at Michael's craft store they are made by Provo craft....they come 45 in a pack and all different colors!!! I added the hero arts gemstones to the centers. The congratulations is from the dollar bin at Michael's.


Because this card has brads on it I am entering it in the my time to craft brads/ eyelets challenge for this week. http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/


I really like this card....simple & easy!!!


enjoy the rests of the week!!

Vert nice; I like the embossed background and those flowers are great!!! Nice find, GF!!! I think most girls would rather flowers than a cap/gown card anyway!
