This is the card I made for my oldest son’s college graduation. I basically layered the card with White, Blue, and gold papers, which are his school’s colors. I printed out “Aspire”, “Success”,”Class of 2018,” and Five gold and Navy blue circles onto white cardstock. I added a white and gold pocket on the left, bottom corner of the cover to place his miniature degree wrapped in red string inside of it.
I made the degree in Photoshop from an image I found on the internet. I had to create the blue and gold border and I added his name, date, and type of degree on it. I had to guess at the closet style of font to make it blend in.
I added a gold pocket on the inside to place some money inside. I found the Words on the Cover of the card, as well as the cap and tassel; and created the “Congratulations” patterned paper using images from Pixel Scrapper, where I am a Level 3 Commons Designer. I stamped “Congratulations” using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous “Life’s Possibilities” stamp collection. I backed it with a gold circle punched out using my 1 inch circle punch.
The envelope was made using chipboard. I added some gold strips around the sides to accent it. I chose a velcro closure and the envelope was ready.
I hope you enjoyed this share.
