GRADuation cards ~ Day 4!

Hi friends!

Wishing you all a blessed and wonderful Mother's Day ~
if you're a Mama, Grandma, Auntie, Fur Mama, etc ...
I send you blessings for a wonderful day of celebrating YOU!

I have several cards to post 
including my Stamp What?! card ~ 
but catching up in order ...
Day 4 of the Spring Online Card Camp!

We have been celebrating non-stop since Friday
so it's been harder this time around getting my cards blogged!

For this class, we're using saying it with sentiments! 
This class was taught by Nina Marie
and I love that it uses up scraps most of all ~ right up my alley!

 I signed up on Facebook last month for a quarantine Art Club 
And the FB group asked us to send cards to graduates - anonymously :)
So many won’t have the chance to enjoy the graduation walk
or the pomp and circumstance that's the milestone for so many.

I've used Paper Smooches Smarty Pants sentiment
and kept it super simple using scraps and WOW Embossing white powder.
These cards were harder to put together than they look, LOL!

I had to get out the t-ruler and they are still a little wonky :)

For me, I had to ad-lib a little bit with the cutting ~
and I'll show you (a little tip!) the way I did it to make them (mostly) straight!

Eyeballing it - the far right was crooked ...

I just added washi tape to the back
then ran it through my trimmer to cut off the excess. 

It worked!
I'm devastated to see now that when I was photographing these yesterday,
a small drop of water landed on the card ~
it's long dried and the card is perfectly fine, LOL!
So we'll just pretend it's not there :)
 Such a fun to make and once you get the process rolling,
it's easy to make an assembly line of these! 

 That's card class #4!

I have another card to blog 
and then you'll see card class #5 :)

Hugs to you all on this special day for mamas!
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
