Graduation Thanks

Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Father's Day!
I hope all those Dad and husbands are being treated well for their special day. We do not have any plans for today, except to go to an early dinner. We gave my hubby all his Father's Day cards and he loved them.

Here is my project for today...
a thank you card that my son is going to use for graduation. Not sure who is going to give it to yet, but he can decide later today so it can go out in the mail tomorrow.    
 I used Birthday Bash (p. 40) to create the card base...another shaped card! Yeah! I have a box of invitation envelopes that I purchased at Walmart, so I cut the base (6 1/4") as large as I can to fit comfortably.
The stars are double cut at 2" using the Celebrations Cricut cartridge shadow feature (p. 110). I then ran two stars thru my small Xyron machine and added white glitter. There is a foam dot in-between to add dimension.
I used the Spellbinders ~ Picot Edge Circles for the focal point. Hint...use wax paper between the paper and die cut to prevent sticking and tearing.
Pearls add a special touch!

Other Materials:
red and white card stock
blue star pattern paper came from scrap box
"Just Because" Cards Cricut cartridge ~ Thanks cut at 2"
blue ribbon
white pearls


Enjoy the rest of your day!
Stay Creative,
