Adulthood Begins

for those graduating this month or next  whether it is from high school or college.  Don't you just love the bright promise and eager anticipation this time of year brings?  Best  wishes to all those beginning their independent lives --- AKA adulthood.  Oh the lessons they will learn :-)
Today's card was really easy to put together, but I like how it turned out.   Clean and simple.
  • DCWV cardstock from the "Butterfly Garden" stack
  • Grad Flourish cut file
  • Stickles in 'stardust'
  • 'Amaze' font
I chose the Amaze font from my computer and cut the words and year in, I believe (I didn't make a note of that, sorry!) 72 Pt size and then chose to pull it out to make it just a tiny bit bigger.   I also re-sized the Grad Flourish cut file.  All the elements were then glued to the card and I used 'Stardust' Stickles to highlight the swirl and the tassel, set the card aside to dry, and it's good to go.

Thank you for stopping by More Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes.  Enjoy what's left of the Memorial Day Weekend, and don't forget to hug a veteran!   Shawna


  1. Very nice! I love the glittered swirl. I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend!

  2. Thank you Hollly. I hope you are too. I sure miss seeing your cards, but I TOTALLY understand the need to cut back.

  3. Wow, what a great card. It is frilly enough but not too frilly! Really nice!
