Craftin' Desert Divas Fun Fold Grad Card

Fun Folds Linky Party


Miriams Crafting Supplies: $5 Credit (not on ATG or Shipping)

Close To My Heart
Lucy Kelleher "Close to My Heart": $10 G.C. (Only in U.S.)

My Project:
For this super fun linky party, I created a Tri-Shutter Card.
If you have never made one of these, you have to try it out!
There are some awesome tutorials on YouTube
on how to do these cards :)

FCCB and BBTB2 have new challenges stating today too.
Over at FCCB (see below for sponsor info) we want to see
Graduation projects
and BBTB2 we want you to use
a "car" cut on your projects.

I combined all of them into this fun Graduation card.
I used Wrap It Up for the diploma
and Beep Beep for the convertible car.
The "GRAD" and "2014" are both cut from Plantin Schoolbook.
My papers were all in my scrap stash, 
this style of card is perfect to use up scraps :)

All my stamps are from Craftin' Desert Divas.
The "Congrats" and "Wish Big" come from Simply Said
and the "Away we go" comes from Destination Fun.
I did some alteration to that stamp by crossing out "we" 
and adding "you" above it with a black gel pen.
I thought it was fitting for this card :)

The enamel dots are from Michael's

This is how it looks folded up :)

I hope you will join us for these fun challenges starting today!
