It’s that time of year…Students all over the country are looking to don a cap and gown and walking down the isle to grab their diploma. Designer Renee Zwirek is here to share a fun set of handmade graduation cards!
Graduation time is coming up soon for many people! I have a nephew graduating high school. So proud of him and very excited to celebrate! So, I made a trio of 5 x 7 cards using the Americana collection.
There is nothing like using a Fourth of July collection for those kids either gaining their independence for summer break or for those who will be entering a new chapter of their lives after high school or college. No matter what the situation is, it’s such a joyful time to celebrate your Graduate!
For this first card, I kept it quick and easy. I used a beautiful background with scallops along a center strip of pattern paper. And, I made the focal point a Dimensional Glitter Star to congratulate the shining graduate. I love that “congrats” rub on underneath the star!
For this next card, I layered a couple of pattern papers. I added some machine-stitched stars, a “Class of 2014” tag, and a fun Cardstock Shape. I especially love that tag I made using the awesome Date Stamp to say “Class of” and combining that with the sparkly “2014” Cherish Thickers!
For this last card, I made a pocket on an angle using different strips of pattern papers. A perfect thing for you to add a gift card or (even better) a Ben Franklin to say Congrats and Best Wishes to the special graduate!
