Graduation Shaker Card

Today's been such a beautiful day.  So I wanted to get this posted quickly so I can enjoy the weather while I can.  Tomorrow we are do for rain.  Yuck!!!

Card Recipe:

Blue cardstock - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
White cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
Blue cardstock - 3 3/4" x 5"

Silhouette Store #43780 Polaroid Frame by Hero Arts (sized 3" x 4 1/2") cut out of white cardstock

Cricut cartridge Locker Talk

On page 48, I used the graduation hat on blackout at 1" and cut it out of black cardstock.  I glued it to the front of a piece of acetate.  

Since MSU's colors are blue and gold.  I went to Joann's, purchased sequins by Darice in both colors, and added them inside my shake box.  I wrapped gold ribbon around the polariod frame and tied a knot in the front.

Cricut cartridge Flower Shoppe

On page 17, I cut the <Sunflwr2> at 2.60" x 4.12" out of Cartulina from Recollection.  

I computer generated the sentiment using Times New Roman (22pt) and Cafe Rojo (28pt).  Note to self - next time give more spacing in between of and 2014.

I finished the card by adding some doodling with my white gel pen. 

My daughter's girlfriend will be graduating this Fall (2014) from Montana State University, so what better time then now to start her card.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a message.  I will be more than happy to assist you in anyway possible.  Otherwise, have a wonderful weekend.  I know I will because tomorrow is my birthday.  Can't wait to see what's in store for me.......  Until then, have a great day!
