Graduation Cards - Gypsy & Locker Talk Cartridge

Things have calmed down a little around here and I am starting to feel better and BIGGER and not like I need to sleep all the time.  So....., I am finally getting these gradutaion cards uploaded and posted.  My daughter helped in getting these made and put together.  We made about 75!!!

I used the Cricut Cartridge "From My Kitchen" with my Gypsy to make the strip on the bottom.  Any cartridge with a square or rectangle would work with either a Gypsy or Design Studio.  I then just put the size "Real Dial Size" I wanted:  4.75" X .5".   The Gradutaion Cap is from the Locker Talk Cartridge.  Using my Cricut really helped in getting all these made.  I love it for making cards and other projects but find my Cricut irreplaceable when mass producing.

Card Base: SU  Night of Navy 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  Marigold Morning 4 X 5 1/4  ( I am so glad that this color is one of my daughter's high school colors, as I have some extra of this retired '07 In Color)
Other Cardstock / Paper: White
Ink: SU More Mustard (numbers), Night of Navy
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) For the Graduate Stamp Set - I am little disappointed in this set.  The numbers that come with it did not fit together very well or in the "Class of " space.  I am usually extremely happy with my PTI purchases.   Anyway, I used numbers from a random set I actually got at Oriental Trading Company.
Accessories: SU Night of Navy  1/4" ribbon, Cuttlebug and Argyle embossing folder, PTI Mat Stack 1 die.

This is the inside.  On the top we adhered a typed up "announcement" part of the card.  Then in the pocket we put a collage picture of my beautiful daughter.  Under the picture we put a quote:  "Graduation is not the conclusion of an achievement, but simply the ending of one chapter and the beginning of another chapter." - Thomas S. Monson

These were typed up and cut with a paper trimmer.

This is a before picture.  I used my Accucut manual die cutter and the A2 Card - Pocket die.
