4 Quick Grad Crads

I stopped by the coffee shops this week. Yesterday my last grad card sold (remember the set of seven I made last week?) I never know how many to mass produce. I don't like to have leftovers from one year to the next. E.g. I had one Father's Day card left over from last year, so I put that out first. It also sold yesterday, so I suppose I will need to do a little Father's Day mass production tomorrow.
When I need inspiration, I go "shopping in my craft room." I think I know what I own, but the truth is I forget what I have. I only had about 30 minutes to craft today...talk about pressure :) I started in my drawer of matching cards & envelope sets. I forgot I had these four DCWV tri-fold cards and envelopes. Four cards it is! Then in search on sentiments...a couple of years ago I bought a box from QVC (Lisa Bearnson, I think) that had enough stuff to make 50 cards plus a scrapbook album and papers. I completed the album back then and those 50 cards are long gone too, but the extra die cut sentiments are still in my craft room, untouched until today. I found four circle sentiments I thought would work for grad cards. Add some red linen and black linen scraps with my QuicKutz grad cap die and Stampin' Up! label punch...and a black snap....DONE! All packaged and ready to go in 30 minutes.
