Graduate 2011

Happy Friday!
WOW! I thought Blogger had given up on all of us! I was ever so slightly worried!  Thank goodness we are back up and running! Yay Blogger! THANK YOU!

Today's card is a fun little guyish card.  I used to be afraid of making guy cards, but after a few years of practice.....I've become pretty comfortable with making them.  My general rule is no frillies or bows on my guy cards.  I think I've achieved that here today!
Uuuum, maybe.  I used some raffia I received wrapped around an Etsy purchase {yes, I save everything} and then added a vintage button and some button twine. And yes that is a bow, but I think its legal cuz its made from twine! lol!
This diploma was cut from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge as well as the numbers.  The numbers don't offer a shadow feature so I just cut one set in the printed paper and the other set in the solid paper and then staggered them when I glued them together to give the shadowed look.  I also added a little detail with my Copic marker to make all the lines the Cricut cut show up a bit better.
Well, that's one more graduation card down and I may have one more to make...I better go check on that! I hope you've enjoyed my card today and if you did, please leave a comment to tell me so! I love reading your sweet words!

That's all for now, please join me again next time...but until then, have a lovely day! HUGS! :)

Pin It!

Great male card, DeeDee! Not girly in the least bit! Sorry I've been MIA. Got lots to catch up on, I see. Been a little overwhelmed and for some reason I can't sign into my blog through IE like I usually do so I either have to go to another server or to my laptop. What a PITA!!! It's slowing me down, big time! xxD
