For My Grad & My Hubby

Do you know how hard it is to make cards, when the people you're making them for are always in the same room as you? I had to go stealth I'm telling ya. But I managed to create these cards. The first one is for our amazing daughter who received her associates degree. Next fall she will be starting on her bachelors. We are so proud of all she has achieved.

This one was for my hubby for Father's Day. I  had to keep it more generic because it was from me and our daughter. I love these colors together. For the side panel I stamped the stripes with my Three Line Boarder stamp from DeNami..LOVE this stamp. Then I used my chevron die and cut several strips and attached them with a small space between each one. Love how this looks and will be doing this again.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
