Today I am sharing a quick and easy graduation card that my daughter requesting for her flatmate when she graduated with a PhD. For my card I have mixed and matched some Amazing Paper Grace dies with Spellbinders dies to create a simple yet very elegant graduation card. I have used red accents as this was the colour of the faculty where the friend studied.
For my card I have created a top folding 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ base card out of white cardstock. I reversed foiled the background using the Spellbinders Glimmering Swag Glimmer Plate using gold foil. This was trimmed to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered to the front of the card. I then die cut the frame using the Amazing Paper Grace Rectangle Fluted Classics die and adhered it to the front of the card using foam tape for some dimension. I die cut the inner panel using the next size down rectangle Fluted Classics die and adhered it to the centre of the card inside the frame. Finally, I die cut the smaller panel and embossing it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder and adhered it to the front.
I die cut the graduation hat out of gold, black and red cardstocks using the Spellbinders Hat’s Off To You Dies and adhered it to the top right of the card. I decorated the card with the ‘congrats’ sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2020 – Elegant Infinity Dies, the stars from the Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Decorations Dies and the numbers from the Spellbinders Victorian Numbers Dies.
