It’s Time for Graduation Cards!

Last week I sat down with the “Great Grads” stamp set on page 55 of the SU catalog to see what I could come up with. This is the result!

Graduation_cards_group_2   Here is the whole group of cards.

Graduation5_2 This one I stamped the background all over with the multi-word stamp using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the stamping lined up right.  The little cap over the “a” is popped up with a Dimensional.  The “G” is layered on a scallop punch with another black scallop behind it for contrast.

This one my demo friend, Anne, embossed the quote with the stamp set in silver, which made something resembling a little plate on the front of the card.  Tying the red ribbon around the side strip seemed to add balance.

Graduation4 For this card I CASEd (copied) a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers made by Nancy Riley.  She used Designer Paper and the jumbo star wheel whereas I stamped the words on the strip, used a smaller star wheel at the bottom and used my white gel pen on the black strips.

Graduation3_2 This card opens at the top.  Again an embossed quote at the bottom and just the “Graduate” medallion at the top for a very simple look.

Graduation2_3 And one more, very simple and easy!

Now I just need to make a special one for my son graduating from the University of Texas at Austin!
