Hey there! Another card for all those graduates around the corner. There are none in my family this year, but I’m ready with a little stash if I’ve over looked someone. I’m using one of the May release sets from Our Daily Bread Designs; this one is called As You Graduate. I’m using more of the paper I used yesterday with the DCWV Linen – I love that stuff and yes, it is a stack.
For the focal point I used one of my Spellbinders fav’s – Fancy Tags. I tried ribbon around two of the tags at the top and two of the tags at the bottom to make opposing ribbons. It left just a little bit of space in the middle to nestle a sentiment. On each edge I punched a fan motif with a Martha Stewart punch just to break up the print.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Lovely card….thanks for sharing.
OMgosh … WOW. That is stunning.
I love the Fancy Tags, too, but don’t have them yet. Everytime I see you use them I get anxious to get them. Awesome card–yours are always so “clean”. I seem to get too carried away with mine. I’ve got to learn to restrain myself. Less always seems better…and cleaner. Where do you buy your half pearls–bulk or by the package? I have to try stitching, too–one thing I’ve not attempted yet. Great job, Becca–you are the best! Hugs…
SUPER FANCY Girl! Its is just beautiful!
It took me a while to spot the “fan motif”! LOL!! You never cease to amaze me with how you put various elements together to make such unique cards. I wish I had your artistic touch!
Oh so pretty! Love the colors… the dies you used… the gorgeous ribbon! :o)
Absolutely LOVE the way you layer paper and embellishments Becca!
Wonderfully done, Becca! Love the bows and the way you used the three dies.
This is wonderful, Becca. I love how you come up with the most creative ways to use tools!
Love and hugs ~
As always Becca, I love this card!!
The bows definitely add the gorgeous touch. Beautiful as ALWAYS!!
Just today I used one of your ideas for a card.
Thanks so much for your inspiration.
This is beautiful Becca, love the dp and the colors.
What a lovely card and perfect timing. The ceremonies have already started!
Thanks for sharing! :o)
Beautiful card Becca, how ingenious to use the labels north to south verses east to west. Such lovely colors chosen. I love how you put the bows to frame the focal point. It is just an all over beautiful design. As always Becca, TFS!!! :-D
Gorgeous as always. Your cards are always so lovely. I just can’t wait to look you up every morning to see what your latest creation might be. Thanks for being you!
Awesome card Becca, I love the fancy tags, I haven’t been able to find
them in my area but I am still looking.
Very simple, very clever! I love the blue fans peaking out at the corners – almost missed them! Thanks, Becca.
Gorgeous! Love the use of the tags!
If I’m not mistaken, you have a blog candy to award, yes? I believe you said you were going to pick a random number last friday.
Beautiful! I have a question for you :) How do you send your cards. I know you spend alot of time on your bows and such. Is there a packaging secret so they don’t get squashed?
I really love your style. Your designs are so precise and so complete. Thanks for sharing :)
Your card is fantastic. You have such a beautiful style.
Love your card it that time of year and I am still behind makeing mys so got to get on it.
Fantastic, love the bows and how you wrapped the middle tag!
B- What a sweet, elegant, big-girl graduation card. I must steal-away this idea for my little-girl, grown-big (my college graduate this past weekend).
Love it! The bows are gorgoues and I love the FT used that way!
