You may have noticed that I haven’t posted since early April. Life kinda has a funny way of happening! Many family members visiting, and most especially my work. And then when I had a couple of days off, got my laundry caught up and went to my craft room, I couldn’t think of one single card I wanted to make! Ever happen to you? So without cards I had nothing to post about. I finally gave in and pulled out the card fronts I made for On Stage the first of April. I have never shown them and I do think they are pretty. So I will be featuring them over the next few weeks trying to get my posting back on a regular basis I will start by posting just once a week on Saturday.
That said, I did make a couple of new cards recently and will feature those first. The one I am showing today was a graduation check holder made with the lovely, inspiring Delightful Daisy DSP and the Daisy Punch.
This is the outside, the check I used was a Cashiers Check and it is unusually long- 8 1/2″. The colors are: Calypso Coral and Old Olive. See below for the list of supplies that I used on this project.
Here it is without the ‘Belly Band”.
The sentiment is mostly original. I found the basic sentiment on the internet but was unable to find the author. I changed quite a bit of it to suit my situation. The sentiment was printed from my computer on Whisper White Card Stock and cut to fit. The little length of Whisper White at the bottom of the sentiment covers up my personal message and signature. Forgot to take a picture before I signed it!
Here are the supplies I used in making this holder. If you would like the size of the cuts please email me and I will be happy to send them to you.
