For our area the local high school graduations are this weekend. The county has them all in the same location and with 6 high schools now they hold 2 each day – Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Our schools are large and the traffic around the facility gets backed up for ever. For us we don’t have to do that anymore since Ryan is the youngest and he graduated from high school last year. He has finished his first year of college. The next graduation we have will be Tyler graduating college in December. But we do have friends and other family members graduating now and I need to send out some cards.
The Bravo stamp set is perfect for graduation cards. It has a variety of greetings and most are pretty big in size too. I used that set to make this graduation card. Remember yesterday I said that I often take left over card parts and remake them into a new card. Well I did the same thing with this card – it was one I originally created earlier this year during Sale-A-Bration so the little strip of designer paper that I used is from the paper pack that you could get then. But it would be easy to switch that out for any paper – use one that coordinates with the school colors of your graduate.
Here is the original card:
The other stamp set I used on this card is called Dotty Angles. Both of these are photopolymer so they are see through and easy to position on your project. I finished the card with some Baker’s Twine – I used Basic Black here and its tied into a bow with long tails and feels like a tassel – if you wanted you could actually add a tassel made from Baker’s Twine.
On the inside I stamped the big CONGRATS! There is room to write a short note if you need to. Add it to a gift or include something in the card. A really quick card to make – you could pop out a stack of them in no time.
