Girly Grad Cards









Hello everyone! Here are some graduation cards that I did for my Niece and my son's girlfriend. I did each card in the school colors for each girl. I also did a little different sizing on the orange one. That was the second one I did and figured I could go a little bigger on the font. I cut the girl from Forever Young at 4 inches and highlighted her dress with a white gel pen. The grad cap is from Everyday Paper Dolls that I custom sized in my Gypsy. The font was cut at 1.5 inches and the 2011 was cut at .5 inches from Plantin Schoolbook. To finish I tied a ribbon and stamped the "congrats". I am going to enter this into My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge #8 which the theme is "congratulations". I hope you all like my cards and thanks for looking! Have a great day!

These are really nice grad cards. Like your recent wedding card, the size of these cards are great for giving monetary gifts. :) ~Jen http://happyplaceforjen.blogspot.com/

OHmy! I totally need to scraplift this card! I have so many graduation this year... I am so in LOVE with this whole idea! I was trying to think of how I could personalize each one( of cours 2 of them are different school colors and the other 2 are at least the same). TOTALLY LOVE IT! COngrats to the GRADS!
