Grad Money Holder Card

Hello everyone!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I have been so swamped with life that I haven't had time to blog as much as I wanted to in the past few weeks. I have been crafting..... just no time to photograph and post. I'm hoping by the first of the month things will calm down and I will be back to posting a few times a week.
    Ok with that all said, Id like to welcome those of you that came from The Card a Day Blog where I am the designer today. I'm so happy to have you stop by my blog. If you haven't been to the Card A Day Blog, Please go over and see the wonderful designers they have. Everyday there is a different card posted there. They have tons of ideas and inspiration waiting for you.. Here is the link http://cardadayblog.blogspot.com/
      This week I put together a Grad Money Holder card I wanted to share. It is a simple card to put together but I did end up using a handful of products. Here is the list of supplies and the sizes I used for the cuts on the Cricut.

Card base- Paper Studios embossing folder called Note Book. I ran both the front and the back of the card with the folder. Then I punched 3 holes. I ran yarn through the holes.
Tassel-- cut at 4 inches REAL DIAL size from Everyday paperdolls In Glitter paper. Then fringed
Letters- cut at 1 1/2 from Storybook in Glitter Paper
Grad hat- cut at 4 inches ( NOT real dial size) from Everyday paper dolls
Stamps---- Misc from my stash 
Folder tab die----- misc from my stash
Envelope die---Square envelope Sizzix

3D Flower Bouquet Card

Hello Everyone!!
Welcome to my blog!  If your coming from The Card A Day Blog where I am the designer for the day. I want to give you a big ole Texas Welcome!! Enjoy the video I have for you , but be sure and look around my blog. Lots of Rambling going on here.
    Today I have a video for you where I made a 3d  Flower Bouquet card. There are so many themes you can make with this 3d card. I have made one version here on the video. I do not  however decorate the front of my card on this video. Below is a picture of the finished card. I used K and Co die cuts and a misc die cut ( the girl) for the front of this card.

I am posting another theme for this card. I used the United We Stand cart and a MS punch ( butterflies) for this card.

The red, white and blue flowers were ran through my Stars Cuddle Bug Folder (hard to see the details here)

Hope you enjoy making this card.
