Pack Your Bags! by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing my daughter's dance friends card and my niece's graduation card.  This is a little outside the box because as you can see...there's no grad cap or congratulations or anything like that on my card.

Instead I used two Art Impressions sets called

Kelly is going off to Nebraska to become a "Cornhusker."

My niece has accepted a job as a nanny in Minnesota.
She flew out a few weeks ago to spend time with the kids and get familiar with the area.  She'll go back after graduation.

I made a cute little suitcase that matches the card to put her gift in.

Both of these sets come with a LOT of images and verses which makes them very versatile.

Here's the inside of Riley's card.
Copics used:
B04, B23, BG72, C1, C5, E31, E35

This is what the suitcase looked like in the beginning. I just measure it and covered it with paper.  I used a tab punch to make the handle and used a very old Sizzix buckle die and luggage tag to complete it.


  1. Love these, so awesome, especially that suitcase, you are so creative!

  2. What an awesome set that you made for your Niece! Love it and I'm sure she will too!

  3. WOW!!! This set is so cool, Renee!! I'm sure she is over the moon in love with it!! Amazing work!!
