Graduation Is On Its Way!

Hi everyone! It’s almost summer and that means it’s time to celebrate our Graduates!

First up is a fun Star Triple Easel Die-Cut Card, featuring Graduation Dazzles™ Stickers! I customized the card with the graduate’s school colors using green dot paper from Colorists Paper Pack and then added some sparkle with Gold Ripple Holographic Paper (it comes in other colors too) and Velvet Glitter Ribbon.

Here’s a different look, using the same Graduation Dazzles™ Stickers, Colorists Paper Pack, Colorists Ribbon, White and Black Cardstock and a Blank White Card.

Make a quick & easy monogram letter (first/last name of grad or even initial of their school) for your graduate using a Letterpress Wood Block Letter, stenciled with the All Over Swirls Stencil, Glossy Black Embossing Paste and Squeegee. You can also use this technique on portions of our Paper Mache and Chipboard Letters! How fun to spell out the word “GRAD” for your celebration centerpiece!

Here is a quick little video to show you how it’s done:

Another great card idea is to make a Lock-Itz card using the Flutterby Die, Twilight Jewel Paper Pack, Pink Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers, Pink Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers and Everyday Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have some Graduation Inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

    Nice technique! I’ve been wanting to get a paper mache letter to decorate but hadn’t really settled on what I wanted to do with it. This is a great idea. I like to add glitter to my embossing paste or color the white with Distress Inks. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Great projects! I don’t have a grad this year but I will in a couple years. These are great techniques that I can use on other projects. Loved your video. Thanks for the inspiration!

    My graduates to honor this year have already graduated and had their open houses so this posting comes late for me to use now. I do like the clean basic layout of card 2 and can tweak that to inspire some creations for other occasions. Plus the variety included in this posting was enjoyable to review.
