April Blog Hop ~ Card 2

This month we are challenging you to create a project that features something tilted.  

The second new set I bought was Big Ticket Basics. I have Just the Ticket and used the daylights out of it. I haven't used it in a long time, though. So when I saw the new on I wasn't sure but the new stamps are so fresh and trendy and the size is great. I like BIG things. Not into the tiny stuff ;)

I told you before my middle son, Brandon is graduation from KU, University of Kansas, May 19. I have made a special card for him I will post later but I need lots of cards for friends and for sale. I LOVE this card. I am not 100% sure I would have designed this one without the challenge. That is why challenges are so AWESOME!

I used True Black pattern pack, Big Ticket Basics, Sketched Shapes die for the arrow, the banner die from Get a Handle, Super Star border die, For the Graduate and, something I HATE to do for a PTI challenge, a Sizzlet die for the diploma! It was too cute not to put it on there, so...
Is this card not adorable? I LOVE PTI! They make AWESOME supplies!

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. I just got this set, too.... I never thought of using it for a grad card, but what a fabulous idea!

  2. Oh my - what an awesome card! I love the black and white color scheme - and the little diploma is the icing on the cake - glad you put it on. :) Congrats to your son!

  3. Love both of your cards today. Now I can't wait for my Big Ticket set to arrive! But after seeing your first card, I'm sorry I didn't order Happiness in Bloom.

  4. Great card. As for Brandon graduating, are we sure he is old enough?

  5. Absolutely fantastic! Such a perfect graduation card!!

  6. I am loving the Big Ticket set too, and wish I'd thought of using it for grad cards - will definitely borrow this idea!

  7. Big Ticket works great on this graduation card - Nice!
