Graduation Card Gown Tutorial

Hello everyone.  Yesterday I showed you this fun Graduation Card and a How to Video featuring Lori Whitlock's A2 Step Card.  I had a lot of questions come back asking me how to make the graduation gown featured on the left panel of this card.  I've made a video for you and I've provided a free studio download for the left panel portion of this card, as well as a PDF for those of you who may not have a digital cutter.  The gown looks super cute on the front of a standard A2 size card, too.
The base card  (shown above) is available at or in the Silhouette shop.

Here's a how to video:

Step Cards Anyone??

Hi there!  I'm so excited to show you these fun Step Cards created using Lori Whitock's Step Cards from her SVG Shop and the Silhouette Shop.  The step cards really pack a wow factor and no one will ever know how easily they go together. 
Here's a photo of the front.  Most of the "wow" is packed on the inside

There are so many possibilities with these card bases.

 It's graduation season and this simple graduation card with quick and easy and can also be used as a table decoration at the grad party.

I made this one for a friend.  We enlarged it as big as we could to fit it on a 12 x 12 mat.  The final card was about 11" tall.  She's going to use it for a table decoration at her daugthers grad party to represent the college she's going to on a volleyball scholarship.

Make sure and check out all the step cards.  There are several different ones to choose from.

Here's a quick how to video for the birthday card above

Studio Calico March Card Kit

I actually went upstairs to my craftroom to put away some recent purchases with no intention of making a card, but my Studio Calico card kit from March was still on my desk as well as the kraft card base (a leftover from the other day).  I spent about 15 minutes throwing this card together and I kinda like it.  It's super simple, super quick and that's ok.
