Graduation Card
« on: May 26, 2009, 06:18:55 PM »



This is my newest listing on etsy http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25578483 . I wanted to make a series of grad cards that can be used for any grad.

It uses chipboard, patterned paper and rub ons - thanks! Jeanine

I wish I had grad cards like that when I graduated.

Sadly they hadn't invented paper at that time.


Very nice, versatile style... any grad could use them.

What?  Did you get yours on parchment? Papyrus? Stone slate?

Darling card by the way.

We just beat on the drums and let people know.

Jeanine, you  mentioned chipboard, is that like really thick paperboard? You must scrap book, I tried that once and threw my scissors across the room. I'm something of a perfectionist. Your lines are yummy, most perfect...

Does throwing scissors do the same damage as throwing pliers?  If not, maybe I should go back to scrapbooking again.

Yes, even more so if you aren't looking and kitty cat is snoozing... Sorry Sassy.
I snapped up all my supplies and tore off to Goodwill. I don't even think that they made it to the selling floor. I don't like failure.

Jeanine has NO worries there... I almost want to graduate again.... Almost

You two make me  :)

Yes, chipboard is basically thinnish cardboard - the thickness varies depending on manufacturer. I cut the chipboard oval with my cricut - which is the most fun thing ever! And the chipboard I used was recycled from paper packaging.

I am a scrapbooker - actually I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and just very recently started making cards. And I'm a perfectionist too which is why I rarely use scissors - there's fabulous tools that make it so lines are straight and shapes are perfect.

Thanks for your sweet comments!

Thank you!

Yes - scrapbooking - like most hobbies worthy of mention - is an obsession! Actually I tried really hard not to get into making cards because I wasn't sure I could afford another hobby! Then I found etsy and decided someone else could fund it for me!! I'm not quite there yet (haha!!) but business is picking up.

I was thinking the same about having these great cards when we were growing up.
