Happy Graduation!

Good morning!

I have a couple of graduation cards to share with you today that I made for some very special Kindergarten boys.  I teach at a small Christian school in the K4, K5 and 1st grade room.  This year, the kindergarten class only had 2 boys in their class - a rather small group, but believe me they kept me on my toes this year! When thinking about the cards I wanted to make them, I decided up this adorable Fred Bear Graduates stamp set because it was perfect for both of them and their personalities!

Card Details
Stamps: Fred Bear Graduates (MFT)
Ink: Memento; Versafine

Card stock: PTI white; SU patterned
Other: Copics; MFT fishtail banner; Lil Inker Designs bow die; yellow stickles; copper nailhead; denim twine from The Twinery

By changing the patterned papers and the colors of the bears I was able to crank these two CAS graduation cards quite quickly.  Love Fred Bear!  And, that bow die from Lil' Inker Designs?  DIVINE!  It works so much easier with lightweight patterned paper, but certainly worked fine on the first one with card stock.  This is the small size - there is also a large size that I may need to pick up soon!

And, here's the graduates themselves... See, why I thought Fred worked well for their cards? *wink*

Have a great rest of your day!

The cards are darling...I love how much interest the variety of patterned papers gives them. Then I saw the little graduates and realized how perfect these cards are for those little charmers!
