Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge: Graduation

I have been making lots of size 10 cards lately.  I love the bigger area they give me for designs.  The Cricut cartridge Stretch Your Imagination is wonderful for doing cards this size.  That cartridge has a card feature on it that cuts out a design in the center of the front of your card.  If you back the cut-out with vellum, it makes a really pretty card.  This card, however, was just cut using my paper cutter.  Cut your card 9 1/4" high by 8" wide and score at the 4" mark.  You can purchase a box of envelopes (size 10 business envelopes) almost everywhere; I get mine at Krogers.  On this card, the black panel (Spellbinder's Labels Large) was popped up with foam dots.  The numbers were cut out using the Cricut Cartridge Base Camp and glitter paper from the DCWV Latte Matstack.  Tilda was masked.  I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to place Edwin behind her (everyone knows that Tilda is the star).  I don't know anyone who is graduating in 2011, guess this card will just take up space; perhaps I can change a 1 to a 2 and use it next year.  To enter this challenge, please check out the Magnolia Stamp Lover's Challenge Blog.
