Clean & Simple Graduation Cards

It feels like forever since I created something new! In reality it's only been a week but boy has that week seemed super long! Anyway, to kick off my weekend I wanted to share some quick and easy graduation cards for two of my cousins.

They have already graduated and had their parties so yes, I am a bit behind in getting these out but that's OK. Better late than never right?

I normally struggle with one-layer cards but lately they have been inspiring me. There is something about the design and white space that is just catching my eye!

These two cards were inspired by fellow CTMH consultant, Jeanie Burch. To create them I used the You & Me stamp set and chose colors that match their high school colors. On the red/yellow card I stamped the flourish in Honey Ink and gently rolled the edges in Cranberry before I stamped. I also did a little shadow stamping on the "dreams" sentiment by stamping it in Honey, inking it in Cranberry and then stamped it a tiny bit up and over from the original stamping.

Thank you for looking and CONGRATS Jeff and Evan! I look forward to hearing about your college adventures!
