Designer Tip: Create this masculine card for a Graduate in a flash! Want a more feminine look, substitute the strip and border paper for floral papers found in Floral Background papers.



  1. Place the card with the fold on the side. Cover the top and bottom of the card with 1 wide strips of black stripe paper. Cover the remaining portion of the card with a 6 wide strip of tan border paper which has Class of 2010 printed along the top edge of the border. Trim the paper even with the card edges.
  2. Adhere the largest star Dazzle to black cardstock and cut out. Glue the black star to the tan portion of the card, above the greeting. Layer the next size star, lined with tan paper, over the black with foam tape. Repeat with a smaller black star and tiny tan star. Adhere a row of 4 tiny silver stars along the striped border at the top of the card.
  3. Inside the card: Line the inside back, left and right sides with 1 wide strips of black paper. Glue a 4 1/2 wide strip of tan border paper, with Congratulations! written on the top, below the border. Trim the paper even with the card sides.
