Graduation Card Duo – by Deb Saaranen

Today Deb treats us to two different graduation cards. Both are quick and easy to make and flat for mailing, which is always a plus! They are showcasing our two NEW graduation stamp sets – Scripture for Graduation & Beyond and Graduation Sentiments. These are wonderful sets that can extend far beyond graduation themes. Take a look:

GlitterGraduation1 500x443

I love the clean, crisp black and white of this card.

A very classy looking card!

The grad cap background is created with an embossing folder while the diploma is a wonderful die.

GlitterGraduation2 400x476

And here’s the left side of the inside.

The right side is plain so you can write your own personal message.

This card uses Scripture for Graduation & Beyond.

GraduationCongrats1 560x410

A fun and simple little cross-hatch design.

Again, crisp and clean. Love how the black just POPS.

This die cut grad cap is in the same die set as the diploma on the first card.

GraduationCongrats2 500x343

And here’s the inside – a super fun message to send along to that grad!

The stamp set used on this card is Graduation Sentiments.
