Graduation time!I

I have not been stamping much with working out in the yard, both at home and at the cabin. Graduation time, however, is here so I did stop other activities to make these three graduation cards. I bought some of the Paper Trey white cardstock as I have noticed that it seems to emboss very well. I have some small pieces of paper from Paper Cuts that also embosses well, but I have no idea what it is...maybe I can ask them at the next convention. Most any cardstock will emboss with the Cuttlebug embossing folders, but some emboss too much and crack. This paper does well with the folders and with Spellbinders embossing and cutting die. These die I used are QuicKutz (mortar board, diploma and confetti) as Spellbinders do not have graduation die. The lion (and tiger that you can not see) are Spellbinders die and are some that I personally designed. They are the mascots for the schools, so I added them inside the card. I have several graduation stamps....somewhere! Maybe I will find them before next May! Now I need to get started with Mother's Day cards...after I finish the 72 wedding shower cookies I am working on for Jim's workplace!!!

That embossing folder would be perfect for the graduation card I need to make for next weekend. Thanks for the inspiration! I love your card, by the way.
