Graduation cards

I wanted to make some graduation cards for a few of the students that I know that are graduating from high school this week. I decided for the sake of time, to make them all the same.

I was inspired by a card on Nichole Heady's blog. The school colours are black and red, so I thought I'd incorporate them into the cards.


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (Stamper's Select White & Smokey Shadow), Mat Stack #1 stamps and die & Tag Its #4 stamps.

I had put the cards I made on the piano until I had time to address them. Cameron saw them and asked if I could make two more for him to give. I decided to use some of my new PTI goodies that I got in the mail this week:


I used PTI cardstock (Stamper's Select White & Smokey Shadow), Happy Trails stamps, a Think Big Favourites #5 stamp & a Tag Its #4 stamp. I also used Crate Paper patterned paper and border sticker.

Thanks for looking!

Went to leave a comment on how cool that second card looks with the graduation cap thrown into the air, and saw that the whole world had beat me to it. Great card.

They're lovely, but that second card really jumps out at me -- so much movement is added with the trail. It's just fantastic.
