The next project uses the squirrel image. He instantly reminded me of my dad! Not because my dad is "squirrely" or has a big, bushy tail but because my dad LOVES peanuts!! I used the Sizzix Matchbox Bigx XL Die to create a box and its cover. The "belly band" is also cut from a piece of DSP and the tag is one of the tags on the Matchbox Bigx XL Die. As you can see by the second view of this project, the matchbox is filled with peanuts! :o)
Ink: Basic Black & Going Grey Classic Ink

The stamp set I used is the new set "Great Grad". The base card stock is Basic Black and I made the invite a top fold card. I used Whisper White for both the outside layer and the inside sentiment layer. I stamped the "Graduate G" twice - once in Basic Black and once in Brilliant Blue. I punched out the Basic Black one with the 1 3/4" circle punch and sponged the edges with Brilliant Blue. I then punched the Brilliant Blue one with the 1 3/8" circle punch and adhered the blue 'G' over the black 'G'. I used Dimensionals to pop this up. The outside Whisper White layer was run through my Big Shot with the Texturz Flourish plate to give it something extra....it looks great! The ribbon is a royal blue organdy ribbon that I bought at a local craft store....it matches perfectly! What do you think?
Before they were punched.....
after they were punched and put together....
after the Dimensionals were added.
They look like "poker chips" in this view to me. LOL!
I hope the wait was worth it for y'all! I had fun putting everything together and look forward to working on my Mother's Day stuff tomorrow! Hopefully I'll have those cards completed and posted for you to see....at least I know my mom, mother-in-law and grandmother won't see them here! ;o)

I was able to get the card stock cut for Brittany's birthday/graduation invitations before I got a call and had to run out the door. Tomorrow I'm hoping to actually get one invitation put together, scanned and posted for you all to see! If I'm really lucky I'll get all of them done and in the mail...but I'm not holding my breath! ;o)
I hope you all have a great night....and remember to hug the ones you love....and be good to them!

I really can't believe that not only will Brittany be graduating at the end of this month but she'll also be turning 18! All this within days of each other....She turns 18 on a Friday, we'll have her birthday/graduation party on Saturday and she graduates the following Tuesday! Where did my little preschooler go? I can't believe she'll be going off to college in a few short months....even if she is going to school nearby! ;o) I am SO very proud of Brittany and super excited about this next phase of her life...and mine!
Be sure to check back Sunday evening to see the invitation that will be sent out for Brittany's celebration and tell me what you think about it!
