May Occasions


 I needed a bunch of cards this month for graduations, birthdays and my Buddy Swap. I saw this design recently on Dawn Olchefske’s blog and just loved it.  The cardstock and DSP is identical to Dawn’s card.   I changed the style of the sentiment and used different stamp sets.  On version shown,  the sentiment is from Happy Greetings. It’s stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Wild Wasabi embossing powder. I use the Decorative Label punch for the sentiment and mat.  

I placed the graduation card in a Clear Translucent envelope and took it to the graduation party.    It made a lovely gift with a very personal note and some cash tucked inside.  Clear Translucent envelopes are approved for the US Mail but I usually save them for hand delivered cards.

For another version of this card, I used the happy birthday stamp from the Pretty Postage set and used the scallop square punch for the sentiment and the scallop square die for the mat.  I also used Versamark with the Wild Wasabi embossing powder.
The hardest thing about this card was trying to divide 5” into thirds to come up with the width of each of the 3 papers. Comes out to 1.66 inches.  Find that on a ruler.
