Mini Monday - Graduation Edwin


Good Morning, Friends. Happy Monday! It’s time again for Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Mini Monday. 

This week my card had to be about graduation since my nephew, Mark graduated from high school this year. 

 
The card features Mini Graduation Edwin available in the Magnolia-licious store. I used some digi papers I got on Etsy that matched Mark’s school colors. The cap is a Silhouette Cameo cutting file and I distressed it to give it a little depth. I cut my Magnolia pennant and Christmas tag die cuts to spell out Class of 2013. 

 
I rolled a small piece of white cardstock distressed with Walnut Stain and wrapped it with jute twine for a dimensional diploma. Square black brads in the corners finished the card. 

Don’t forget to leave a comment on the Challenge Blog or the DT blogs for a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps. 

 
All the details can be found on the challenge blog.

In a previous "Mini Monday" post I made a small box for my daughter to hold her birthday gift and I wanted to share the contents with you. Her Birthday is tomorrow and I gave it to her this weekend while she was here at the ranch. 

 
I made her 7 pair of earrings and a turquoise necklace and bracelet set. Beading has also become one of my favorite pastimes. 

Well that’s it for me for today. I’ll see you back here on Wednesday for another Magnolia project. Don’t forget to enter my candy if you’d like a chance to win. HERE is the post. 

Hugz,
