Graduations Galore. 5 in June and 1 in July...

Focus on Sentiments for CAS-Tastic . G is for Graduate. The sentiment stickers in this and the following cards is from 7 Gypsies... so is the red and cream striped paper. The envelopes are made by me from DCWV Halloween stack, but they did match the Graduation cards quite nicely.
The Grad hat stamp in some of the cards is from A Muse art stamps.
All the cards are 5x7 sage green stock from my stash of paper from when I was still working at a print shop.
The brads are all from Basic Grey.

Keep scrolling to see cards for Diva Coffee Break Designs, and Tellen's Place.
Diva Coffee Break Designs has this sketch today that I used in most of these cards actually, but this one follows the sketch the closest, so I will use this one for them.
Deciding which card is going to which graduate is going to be the hard part with these cards!
I typed up a really nice poem to go on the inside of the cards and printed it 6 times and trimmed it to fit the inside... and glued it in. Much easier than getting my printer to take on 80# card stock.
I like how the camera caught the shine of the foil stamping on these graduation hats on the paper. I still have to make a kindergarten card for our granddaughter, but I am going to make her card with bright colors and girly! She is all girl... no boy colors allowed. I didn't know colors had a sex, but they do in her world! ;)
2 patterned papers for Tellen's place. The one with the French text is from Creative Memories.
This challenge is too easy to miss everyone! Go play at Tellen's place. (The girls there are super nice and always come an leave a nice remark to the participants in the challenge too! And while you are there... go check out her really awesome digi images! I, unfortunately, didn't use one on the card today, but you don't have to to play... just like if you play here at KWED!
