4/19 Sneak Peek Grad Card!

Another great sketch from Stamping 411 resulted in this cute grad card and a Sneak Peek of a brand new set called "Go, Graduate!" I LOVE that Stampin'Up demonstrators get to order in advance of any debuting catalogs and next month our Summer Mini will be out and this cute set will be in it! I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw it. (ha ha . . . like that never happens! When don't I want something new from Stampin' Up! It's one of the reasons I became a demonstrator - I want the fun stuff FIRST!)

This card is a little stretched out compared to the sketch because I wanted to make a card that would make it easy to enclose money or a check. (Grads LIKE getting $$$!) This card is sized at 3 1/4" x 6 1/2" and fits into one of our Long Envelopes perfectly. I used watercolor pencils to color the images and used a blender pen to smooth out the look.

The inside of this card is super simple . . . as most of my inside panels are . . . but at least there is something to look at when you open up the card!!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Hi Kay! Thanks for visiting my blog. And ... congrats on your Stamping411 spot, too! I think "stretching" is totally legitimate for a sketch challenge! This is adorable! Hugs, Andrea xxx
