Graduation Cards

Happy Graduation Cards!!

My middle son is graduating next month and he has a lot of friends.  I am making a LOT of graduation cards!!!  I typically don't like to mass produce my work, but in this case I would drive myself crazy (and run out of time) if I didn't!

I did use a file from Silhouette to cut out the jumping graduate and hats.  I am new to Silhouette but I still prefer the Gypsy.  I can file all of my project pieces in one place and refer back to them when I need measurements for blog posts.

I LOVE having the option to open several layers in a project too.  This project has 12 Layers and three card designs.

I used CTMH Artiste for the scalloped circle.  I sized them to 4.62 inches (3 inches using Real Size).

On one page, I hid the outer circle so I cut out the scalloped circle.  I cut these out in white cardstock.

On the second page, I hid the inner scalloped circle and cut out the shadow circle.   I cut these out in black cardstock.

I used Birthday Bash for the numbers and sized them to 1.25 inches.

I custom the colors of the numbers to match the school.  I have an entire page of 2013 to cut out in blue for my son's school.  The red and maroon are for some of his friends from other schools.

I used my 5" Xyron to put adhesive on my numbers.

I saved a piece of the leftover cuts to use as a stencil.  I placed my numbers inside the template and carefully peeled off my blue "leftover" paper.  I do this to line up my letters (or in this case numbers) perfectly every time!

I added some matching twine and stickles to finish the card front.

I punched a 2" circle and stamped the sentiment inside.

This card I did a little different on the outside.

I am off to finish the blue cards!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
