Congrats Graduate

UPDATE: May 8, 2018… The Congrats die is now available from My Favorite Things!! You can find it here.

It’s that time of year again! How many graduates are in your life this year? We have several high school grads that I want to remember with a little something.

Below is this year’s graduation card – perfect for all the grads in classic black and white. The graduation cap stamp is from Stampendous – I don’t think it’s still available, but this one or this one would work great!

The congrats die is from My Favorite Things. It was a free die they gave away with an order and I just love it! Sadly it’s not available for purchase (at least not yet!), but if you haven’t visited their site you should! They have tons of cute stamps and dies!! You can find similar dies here, here, and here.

The graduation cap embossing folder is from Darice. I found mine here at Amazon.

To make the card, stamp the graduation cap with black ink (I used Memento Tuxedo Black) on white card stock and punch with a circle punch or die and layer to a scalloped circle punched from black card stock. (This a great basic set of circle dies and here is a set of scalloped circle dies. I can’t believe how often I use circles and scalloped circles in my card making! You may want to consider investing in some of these dies – I think you’ll be glad you did. 🙂 )

Anyway…back to the card…Attach a panel of black card stock to a white card. Emboss a piece of white card stock with the graduation cap folder and layer over the black panel. Die cut “congrats” from black card stock and attach to the card. Attach the stamped graduation cap to the card with foam tape. Finish it off with a few gold sequins.

Simple, but filled with best wishes as the graduates continue on their journey.

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
