 Welcome to Stampin Dreams Blog Hop.

Stampin Dreams Blog Header

We are a group of very keen Demonstrators that love to share what we do in the hopes that we will inspire you.  This month's theme is Graduation.  I gave a lot of thought into this and then decided to do a Graduation card for my Grandson.  He is Graduating from Kindergarten.    So I kinda deviated from the traditional High School/ University Graduation.  

I sure had fun making this card.  I even made the little graduation caps using the new Round and Square Brads.  I will give a supply list below.

In this one you can see what I put onto the back of the card.

The caps also used the twine from the Snail Mail Suite.  I just coloured the white twine with the black stampin blends.

I have a video showing how I put the card together, but first here are the measurements.  

Thick Basic White: 6" x 10 1/2" scored @ 2 1/2", 5", 7 1/2", and 10" on the long side and 3" on short side.  See video for cutting

Basic White: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" for images

Bermuda Bay: 2 1/4"x 5 1/4" for back panel, 1/2" x 3 1/2" for  sentiment

Daffodil Delight: 1/2" x 3 1/2" for sentiment

Real Red: 1/2" x 5" for sentiment

Basic Black: 2" square for caps

Window Sheets: strips 3/8" wide

Snail Mail DSP: 6 panels of 2 1/4" x 2 3/4", 2 1/4" x 5 1/4"

Watch the video and you will see how I put the card together.  I created it on the fly.
