Pals Blog Hop: Springtime Grads with Pomp and Circumstance

March Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals March Blog Hop. This month we are excited to kick-off Spring with our creative projects. We hope you enjoy these creations and Spring finds you soon!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Dawn Tidd at Tiddbits from Dawn #7 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

Pomp & CircumstanceIt’s that time of year, alright! With Spring comes Pomp and Circumstance in the form of graduations ~ kindergarten, middle school, high school, college. I am sure you can think of even more! Wouldn’t a fun Center Step Fold card be a great way to celebrate? This card was lots of fun to make. This is my first but I sure will be making one again! Imagine all of the cool images that you could stamp for this layout. Tip: I would suggest mapping it out with a ruler and pencil before you start scoring and cutting.

I really love this stamp set for a fun graduation card. The addition of the new Hostess stamp set from the Celebrate the Everyday catalog, Making a Point, just made it even better.

  1. I have never made one of these cards as they look so hard….but I am going to have to take a dive and try! This is great! What a special way to celebrate a graduation! My niece graduates this year…..!!!! Hmmmm….a CASE might be coming! Thanks for the inspiration!!!!

  2. This card DOES look like it was so much fun to make!! I love step cards! There are so many little nooks and crannies to place images. Great job with this one, Debbie! Love the colors that you chose. Are they significant to the graduate? (That would be a fun way to incorporate school colors). Off to pin….
