A Graduation Card for H2H

Hello. It's good to be back for the moment at my sadly neglected blog. From April to July, I am so busy with work that I have no energy left to craft. 

Over the past few months, I have been sending out a lot of cards from my stash. So it's time to stock them back up. I had just a few graduation cards left, so that helped me decide the theme for the card I am sharing with you today.

All supplies by CTMH unless otherwise noted.
Paper: Later Sk8r (retired), Outdoor Denim CS (retired), White Daisy CS
Stamps: Smarty Pants (retired), Ink Blot (retired)
Inks: Outdoor Denim (retired), Whisper (retired), Lagoon
Tools: Oval Dies (Spellbinders), Micro-Tip Scissors
Other: Thin 3d Foam Tape

Back story: I had originally designed this card as a dinosaur birthday card. You can see the original version here. Which is your favorite? The strange thing is that when I did a search on Pinterest, I could only find a few examples for graduation cards for inspiration. We, as crafters, must not send out a lot of graduation cards. 

I would like to link this card up to Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Friends. This year, we were invited to a friend's graduation party for their daughter. Guess we have finally hurdled the generation gap since this was our first invitation in a couple of years for such an event.

Thank you for hanging in there with me during my absence. I hope to be able to share a few more designs with you before work picks back up again in September. Have a blessed day.



  1. This is the BEST graduation sentiment ever (even though it is from Dr. Seuss...) Love your colour combination and added embellishments. Thanks for sharing with us at Heart 2 Heart. Glad to see you back again :)
