Congratulations Graduate!!!!

Graduation is around the corner so I thought I would share my favorite Graduation Card! This is an occasion that can happen in December, May or anytime of the year. You may know of 5 graduates one year and only 1 the next. So because of this, I don’t tend to purchase graduation specific stamp sets, but I do LOVE all occasion stamp sets like Teeny Tiny Wishes (greatest stamp set ever)!!! I think played around with my punches and some cardstock and came up with this AMAZING card!!!!

Graduation Cards,

I love this card so much because it can easily be customized to each recipient. I really enjoy giving a card when I know it fits that person so perfectly. I have done these graduation cards in school colors, degree colors, and so much more! I LOVE IT!!!

Cardstock Dimensions:

Card Base (whisper white) – 4-1/4″ x 11″
Layered Color – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Hat: 1-1/2″ Square
Largest Triangle for Neckline (whisper white) – 2-1/4″ Square cut diagonally
Color Triangle – 2″ Square cut diagonally
Smallest Triangle (whisper white) – 1-3/4″ Square cut diagonally and then cut a “V” out of the center to show the color through

I brushed the edges of the hat with my sponge daubers (HEART) in the same color as the cardstock to give it that darker edge look and make it POP from the gown since it is all the same color! I also adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals!  For the tassel, I used Whisper White Bakers Twine and just wrapped it around the square hat four times, then cut the twine on both the top and bottom on your square. This gives you eight little pieces of twine. Then take a longer piece of twine and tie the little pieces together in the center. Trim one of the tails to be the same as your little pieces and leave the other one longer to poke through the hole of your hat using your Paper Piercing Tool. Then add a Silver Brad over the time and you are all done!

Nurses Graduation Card,

Sorry for the horrible lighting in this picture but I snapped it quickly before sealing the envelope and dropping it in the mail. This one I did for my Best Friend when she graduated in Nursing! Super Cute! I hope you try this out for some of the Grads that you know this May!!! If you have any questions or would like to share your fabulous Graduation card, leave a comment below! I would love to hear from you!!!

Happy Stampin’

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets Icould add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.

    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you
    would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    • Sorry I don’t have a twitter account so I’m not sure of a good plug-in for that. I’m glad you enjoy my blog!!! Thank you! ~Laura
