PartyTime Invitation

Hi Everyone!

Busy Days!  Busy Nights!  Marie graduated last night.  I cried. I cannot believe that my "baby girl" has her Master's degree.  We aren't having her party until sometime in June, but we have been planning it. 

I've been working on the invitations. Thanks to Emily Keaton from I have a great graduation embossing folder that I have been using to create the background on my paper.  The embossing folder is a Darice one.

Here's what the outside of the invitations looks like

The paper is actually a pale sky blue, but I think that you can see the embossing more easily if I post the card this way.  I used a Fiskars paper punch to cut out the clouds and then I ran them through a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.  

The graduation caps are Recollections stickers.  I stocked up on them when they were on sale at Michaels a few weeks ago.  They came with foam dots on them so they are 3 dimensional.

The banner and the sentiment were created with clear stamps from
Paper Smooches.  I ordered them directly from the company and could not believe how quickly they arrived at my house.  The banner from their
Streamers clear stamp set is attached to the card with foam tape.  The sentiment is from their Birthday Sampler clear stamp set.  

I am busy working on thank you cards for a bridal shower and surprises for Marie's party so I am not sure when I'll post again.  I'll try to remember to take pictures.

Have a great night!

These invitations turned out AMAZING, Carol!! I love how you made swiss-dotted clouds for those mortarboards to soar through. Great work--and I loved seeing your new embossing folder in action ;)
