Hybrid Craft: Graduation Card

Graduation Card

Digital papers (polka dot on card; stripe on envelope liner): "Party Pants" Kit by Miss Mint (Peppermint Creative)
Black card stock: The Paper Company
Grad Caps/Mortar Board Elements: The Paper Studio
Glitter chipboard letters: Paperbilities (Westrim Crafts)

Font (not shown): ITC Esprit Std

This card is for my niece that's graduating from high school on Tuesday (I know, it's a weird day to graduate). I wanted something that was obviously a graduation card, but kinda girly and fun (and it actually matches her gift, which, on the off-chance that she happens to read this, I won't mention what it is). What I like is that the polka-dot paper wraps around a little to the back. I was too lazy to include all the detail shots. My friend Stephanie helped me out with the design, and then I realized it looked a little like my last card made with these digital papers (seen here) -- hah! But that's okay, it's still a cute design. And, I just can't help the glitter! ^_^

Those caps really add so much personality to the card! Great job!

This is so nice. Wish I would have planned better and made some sort of personalized cards for my seniors. I was getting their gifts ready and realized I didn't have any cards at all and it seemed silly to go buy some, that would end up costing almost as much as their gifts - so I wrote out notes on some Monet notecards that I already had.
