My husband's cousin was here last Friday (for Guy's Night Out) and, before they left with my son and my brother-in-law, Cuz said he needed two cards . . . one for a graduation and one for a new baby. I have a LOT of cards in this room, but I couldn't remember having a baby card on hand and was quite sure I had nothing for a graduate. While the guys were out, I hurriedly scraped the pits of my brain for design ideas. I kept coming up empty! Cuz would probably not believe that, when challenged to create, ideas do NOT flood my brain. The gate-fold baby card got its start because I've made a few gate-folds lately, and the card actually went together quite fast. Yes, it's very simple, but I liked it. When it was time to make the graduation card, I was really stumped because I couldn't think of a single grad-related stamp in this entire room! And then I remembered a Sizzix embossing folder that I had purchased a few years ago. Finding it was a totally different crisis--I hardly ever use the old Sizzix brass embossing folders--but it was found at the back of a bottom drawer. The image embossed beautifully, and I decided that it didn't need a lot of fluff. The best thing about the grad card is that awesome Stampin' Up! satin ribbon! It really dressed up the card, don't you think? And now . . . would you believe that both cards were necessary for "accomplishments" by the same guy? Yep! As Cuz so candidly put it, "The graduate knocked up his girlfriend!"
