Here are some graduation cards I’ve made in recent days. I helped some friends to make some too, but I forgot to take pictures!
First off is for a young man – masculine card
His school colors are purple and gold, but he also went to a magnet school with blue so ci added them to the sentiment. The circle stamps are Tim Holtz, and the 2016 are Unity Stamps. I also added some gold sequins.
I also a Unity Stamp for the inside quote.
This one is for a girl. Her school colors are red and blue. I cut the balloons out with my circle dies added some yarn and the black cap with the a red tassel.
I got my inspiration for this card from a card I saw at My Creative Time blog hop. I used a torn piece of paper in the shape of clouds and using a sponge, I colored them with Broken China distress ink. I then added the embellishments on the base. The Celebrate stamp is an older Stamp’n Up stamp. I also added yarn for the balloons’ strings. I also stamped inside the balloons.
On the inside I stamped this new stamp by Unity Stamps. I received the set just in time to make my cards!
This one is for a young lady who is graduating from college.
I used a Julie Nuttig doll stamp and a brand new face stamp to fit these girls from Peachy Keen. It firs perfectly! I used watercolor paper I then colored the face with watercolor pencils, and pieced together her dress and shoes to match the background. Her aunt said she likes purple, so I made purple the accent color. I then added a small ribbon around the waist and a graduation cap.
Close up of the graduate.
the sentiment along with her diploma.
Last, but not least, the card I made for my grandson. It had to be special!
I used black and gold because those were the colors on his Graduation Announcement and the invitations. The stamp on the left is a Unity stamp. I didn’t have anymore graduation paper so I stamped the diploma, caps, words, and stars on white cardstock with gray ink.
I got this quote from Scapbooks.com and added it to the inside of the card.
As a gag gift, I enclosed a small envelope with some graduation embellishments I found at JoAnn’s. It had a small driver’s license and a set of keys in heavy cardstock. I glued them on a piece of cardstock and glued a miniaturized graduation picture of him.
Then I put it inside another small envelope with gold chipboard sentiments and stars.
I’m waiting to see how he reacts to it. I also added on the back of the small envelope under the flap: “Patience is a virtue.” Just saying!
Looks like I’m caught up with all my graduation cards!!
Thanks for coming by and until next time,
