this fortnight at shopping our stash we invite you to "get your drink on" by which we mean make a card or project which features the beverage of your choice! i went with margaritas on a fun and funky (college) graduation card. see?

all patterned papers and the chipboard letters are vintage/hoarded basic grey; cocktail brads: eyelet outlet; tiny puffy heart stickers from the dollar store; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; adhesives: elmers brand tape runner, 3m foam tape gluedots, scor-tape by sookwang

i had a totally different plan for this card which i immediately chucked out the window when i found the ancient patterned paper with those cuuuuuute birds on it. i'm not sure what they actually have to do with graduation, but they struck my fancy and matched perfectly with this compound patterned paper i made from strips and offcuts of classic basic grey papers. so i decided to just go with it, lol!

hop on over to SOS to see what delicious drinkies the rest of the design team have made especially for you! ♥


  1. I love the papers! I hoard Basic Grey and Pink Paislee (before they became American Craft) papers. Basic Grey brads are like collector items to me. This is a awesome graduation card! Very nice palette and beautifully integrated! Hugz!

  2. How fun! Nice change from the usual grad card.

  3. Cheers!
    The wee birds work perfectly...and for graduation, it's all about spreading your wings and learning to fly :)
