Graduation season is here are you ready with your Graduation cards. My two oldest are done with school and graduations and my youngest still has another year of college – so in my mind I wasn’t thinking that I needed any graduation cards this year. But I was wrong! I actually needed a whole stack – I still had extended family and friends with kids graduating from both High School and College. I created this card and was really pleased with how it turned out. I decided to stick with a black/white/gold theme since I had various schools and both boys and girls – this theme would work for them all.
I used several retiring products on this card – probably things you already have on hand. And then snuck in a little sneak peek on the envelope – that’s a new stamp set coming out June 1st!
Here is a list of the products I used and the retiring items are marked with (R):
- Thick Whisper White card stock
- Basic Black card stock
- Whisper White card stock
- Whisper White Medium envelope
- 1″ circle punch
- Banner Triple punch
- Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper (R)
- Gold Sequin Trim (R)
- Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack (R)
- B.Y.O.P. stamp set (R)
- Basic Black ink
- Happy Birthday Gorgeous (coming June 1)
A tip on making this card – punch the various patterns into 1″ circles and randomly attach to the Whisper White layer – letting the circles hang over the edges in places. Trim off the over hang and uses those pieces to fill in gaps along the edge.
I used just the black & white side of this paper but you could mix in the pink sides too.
Have fun – or use this idea with a different paper – bright colors perhaps and make a birthday card, or soft colors and make a baby card. An easy and versatile design.
Have a great day!
