March Card Swap Cards....

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
This is a Pre-Scheduled Post since I'm still on Vacation!
I'm apart of a local Card Swap group as most of you
already know.... And this month's theme was
Congratulations! Which is up too you on that part...
(Baby, Grad, New Home, Etc.)
We did have a sketch... But I did NOT follow the sketch -
I just wasn't feeling that sketch at ALL --- 😒

Sooo... I decided, I wanted to use some of my
AWESOME dies that I haven't used - I was  
Inspired by Kimberly Harris over at: Kimberly Harris Studio

This is her card that I CAS(E)'D

She used several My Creative Time Dies for hers,
So I did the same! 😁

-- Here's what I came up with --

I choose to do a H.S. Grad Card! 
The School Colors here are Red & Black -
I liked the layout of Kimberly's design, so I stuck with that - 
But chose to raise my Stitched "post it" paper 
& add a Die Word. I thought cutting it
out in Red CS would really make the word POP! 
I cut it out 3 x's for added dimension - AND, 
I wanted this to be for a Female Graduate
so I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the word "Congrats" 
along with some clear gems & Glittered Enamel Dots - 

I made some plain, just in case some of the ladies in my card swap group wanted one for a male graduate -- They really liked the Dies
that I used & the Cork --

-- Supplies Used on these Cards --

Cardstock - Papertrey Ink, Georgia Pacific, Bazzill, Stampin' Up
Specialty Paper - DCWV Adhesive Cork 6x6 pad
"You did it" Sentiment - Computer Generated
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen on the word (Congrats)
Doodlebug Glitter Enamel Dots
itty bitty Clear adhesive Gems - CTMH
(Grad) Hat Die inside my cards - Sizzix
(Tools Used) - Big Shot, Silhouette Program, Printer

-- Dies from My Creative Time --

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
