Congrats Grad!!!

It’s Wednesday, and this week I’m sharing a Graduation Card featuring Grad Boy – R114 from (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Lg. Fancy Congrats – J006 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. My nephew graduated a while ago, but we just found out about it. So this is a belated graduation card. LOL! You know what they say, better late than never!!


To create the card this week, I stamped the main image and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cut at 5.25″ x 4″ using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used just the hat and stamped it at different angles to create my background. The images were coloured in with Copic Markers. I decided to pop one hat up in the air. I stamped it separately, fussy cut the image and then coloured it in and popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To finish off the card, I used double-sided tape and attached the coloured image onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ cardstock from The Paper Studio – Christmas Box of Cards.

Graduation Card for my Niece

My beautiful niece graduated recently and

I wanted to make her a very unique card.

Graduate Front 300 dpi

I created the card front using her university colours.

Wine, white and blue.

For the inside, I saw something similar to this on an SVG Blog Hop and I knew I just had to make it. I missed the original blog hop, but was given a second chance during a second blog hop to purchase a previous blog hop through a donation. Long story short, I LOVED the card that I saw and decided to put my own personal touch to it.

Graduate Inside 300 dpi

With my Cricut Explore I cut out all of the following Cricut images:

Young graduate – Paper Dolls Teen Scene – S-Occssn – #M3F5E7.

Ovals – Phrases – zig zag oval label – #M3A497.

Scroll and sentiment – Wrap It Up – Congratulations – #M43331.

Palm trees – Life is a Beach – PalmTree – #M31ECE.

Sandy bottom – Life is a Beach – Palm Tree – #M33306.

Timon Hula was from the Hakuna Matata Blog hop. I uploaded the .svg file and then used my Cricut Explore to do the cutting.
The long scroll I created in Microsoft Word by inserting the image and then put in my own sentiment.
