Graduation Card

It’s that time of year again – lots of high school and college grads to celebrate! Here’s a simple card that you can make for all of those special ones starting a new chapter in their lives. 🎓

I dry embossed the graduation cap on black paper that is white on the back and lightly sanded the raised edges to highlight the cap. (Here’s a great tutorial on how to dry emboss.) I trimmed it close and rounded the corners.

This is the stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils that I used. I’m not sure it is still available, but a graduation cap stamp would also work. Here’s a simple stamp available at Hobby Lobby. You could stamp it with Versamark ink on black card stock and emboss it with white embossing powder. Or stamp it with black ink on white card stock, trim close, and layer it to black card stock before attaching to the card.

I embossed a panel of white card stock with the Dotted Lattice embossing folder from Taylored Expressions. I attached a strip of “congrats” washi tape from the Target Dollar Spot and then attached the panel to a white card. The graduation cap is attached to the card with foam tape. I added some gold sequins for a little bling.

This is a super quick card to make if you need several. Best wishes to all those special grads!! 🎓

Thanks for stopping by,
