CAS congrats

 There is a new challenge blog at Cas-ual Fridays. The theme this week is using text in some way while keeping cards clean & simple. I thought I usually made CAS cards but am finding I keep wanting to add more so this really did turn out to me a challenge for me. I just received a graduation announcement so decided to go with a congratulation card. Here is my card:
I have an old dictionary so I pulled out the page with the definition of graduate tore it to fit the kraft cardstock. I sponged on StazOn timber brown to give an even more antique look. Punched out a brown scallop and put dots on the scallops with gold star gel pen. The diploma is a sticker stamped with TAC tiny tidbits. Then finished off with a gold star sticker.


  1. Beautiful work, Donna! Love the vintage -like text for your design. Fantastic grad card! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! So glad that you join on the fun! PS: I deleted my previous comment due to typo.
