Red & Blue Congrats...

Hello and Happy Wednesday Crafty friends!
Wahoo! We are 1/2 way through the week already!
I'm certainly looking forward to the weekend!

I don't know about you... but the weather here is HOT already!
We've been in the 90's and my AC is working hard!
Last year, I think it was a little cooler still at this time
of year... but I guess Mother Nature is ready to get this 
party started! LOL  
As long as I stay inside, I'm a happy camper! LOL 
Summer is not my favorite season
but I do enjoy having my son home from school
so we can take day trips together or visit family
while he's off... Come August, I'm sure I'll be
happy for him to get back to a routine... But
for now... we'll just enjoy his time off! :)

I've got another graduation card to share with you

I made a Male & Female Graduation card! 
You never know which one they'll need
so I went with both and I also went with Red & Blue -
Utah's school colors are Red or Blue (mostly)

So, I thought I would stick with those colors on some
of my cards and other cards are just black/gold/white
or Black/Silver/white - since you can never be
to sure on what someone is really 
looking for in a graduation card! :)

I found the Silhouette images through Google and
traced them in my Silhouette Program
adjusted the sizes to work for my card fronts and
then cut them out. I popped them up with
some dimensionals from Stampin' Up

The Stitched Rectangle Die & Postage Stamp Frame Die 
are from My Creative Time 
Cardstock is Recollections 110lb Black & White
The (Congrats) word Die is from My Craft Spot (No Longer in Business)
I cut them out 3 x's each in Silver Neenah Cardstock with some
Stick it adhesive on the back side
The Designer Paper is some old Stampin' Up 6x6 pad I had

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such a great way to make a quick graduation card! I never would have thought to do these. I guess it just goes to show that I overthink things way too often LOL!

Love your graduation cards!! It sure was very hot over here also. Our outside thermometer read 95 degrees, and we are only in May. Hate to see what June, July and August will be like. Expecting another hot day today.
Have a great day!

Awesome graduation cards Theresa! It has been beautiful here but not as hot as you are. It is suppose to reach 83 today but that's unusual for us this time of year...loving it for now, lol!
Have a great day!

These are both so fabulous, Theresa!! I love the designs and the postage stamp dies you used!! We went straight to summer with hot temps, too!! I'd rather have the windows open to let in fresh air, but oh well :) I'd rather have the heat than snow!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)
