This is such an odd year for all those who are graduating. Walks across the stage are either cancelled or postponed. Celebration parties aren’t happening and caps are not being tossed into the air. But…they ARE still graduating and it’s an important milestone for them.
This is a card I made for one of those special grads in my life. I used the university’s colors for my card. Of course, you’ll want to use whatever color scheme works best for your graduate!

Supplies I used:
- Graduation cap embossing folder
- Graduation cap rubber stamp – (here’s a similar one)
- Small number rubber stamps (or stickers) – (similar stamps)
- “Congrats” die – (here’s a similar die)
- Circle punch – I used a 2-1/2 inch punch
- Scalloped circle punch -I used a 3 inch punch
- Sequins (optional)
I used the embossing folder to emboss a panel of blue card stock and attached it to a white card. I die cut “congrats” from red card stock and attached it to the card. I stamped the graduation cap and year on white card stock. I punched it with the circle punch and layered it to a scalloped circle punched from red card stock. I attached the image to the card using foam tape. Then I added 3 silver sequins to the card.
In case you were wondering about adhesives, here are a few of my favorites. I like this tape runner and refills from Tombow for adhering paper and card stock. This Quickie Glue Pen is perfect for adhering small pieces of card stock and die cuts to your cards. Foam tape is a staple for adding dimension to your cards. And this glue is great to add embellishments.
Congratulations to all the graduates! May your futures be filled with love and adventure!
