The Tassel Was Worth the Hassle

Welcome to the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  Ann here with a couple of graduation cards for you.
My niece, Sara, is graduating from high school this month with black and gold school colors, and my nephew, Ben, is graduating with red and blue school colors.

I had no graduation dies to use so I browsed through the dies in the Dies R Us store and found several that I liked.  

I used the following Impression Obsession dies:

Grads Walking (inside the card)

For the framing of the card, I cut the bottom black stitched frame and top white one with the Sue Wilson Designs -- Stitched Lattice Frames.  I filled in a gold rectangle and a black one in between these layers just by cutting 1/4" increments in size.

I cut two of the Sue Wilson "Congratulations" word die, one in black and one in gold and slightly offset them.

Here is the inside of the card:

The scalloped oval is part of the Sue Wilson Designs Frames & Tags -- Grace.

For Ben's card, I used the same graduation dies by Impression Obsession but in a different way.  I also used the Rectangles 6-in-1 Frames by Impression Obsession:

On the inside it looks like this:
