Happy Graduation Sissy Cakes

2015_06_14IMG_7488 Well today is the graduation party for my niece Elizabeth. She graduated from Hickory High School last week and todays post is the card that I made her for gradation that I also incorporated in the scrapbook that I made her for her graduation.  Hickory High schools colors are Teal and Black and the mascot is the Hawk. Elizabeth is full of school spirit, was an athlete and also was the Hawk during the boys high school home games.

So in order to match school colors, I pulled Tempting Teal cardstock out from my Stampin Up archived paper and textured it with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127749. I then cut away part of the card to create the graduation cap and tied a piece of black ribbon for the tassel.

2015_06_14IMG_7489When the card is opened it revealed a plethora of Big and Bold congratulatory greetings from the Stampin Up Bravo #135380 stamp set.

HAWK YEAH!! The tassel was worth the hassle. Good Luck at the College of Charleston Sissy!

Graduation Thank You

2013_06_13Graduation ThankYoU-ALex-001 Today’s post is a quick graduation thank you card that I made in MDS for my niece’s graduation. I used the Embark Grad digital download and then used the coloring tool in MDS to highlight the GRAD letters and her school colors.  I then took advantage of the 25% off digital printing from Stampin Up (thru 15 June) and had the thank-you cards printed.  So easy and cute.

Graduation Subway Art

2013_05_13graduation2013-001 (2)Subway Art has gotten super popular and this year for my graduation cards I decided to use Stampin Up’s My Digital Studio, MDS, a try to create my Subway Art.  I am really pleased with how it turned out and will change out the colors for the graduates school colors before I send it off to Stampin Up to print.  As a bonus, during the month of May, most My Digital Studio print products are on sale for 25 percent off. So now is a good time to finish up your digital projects!

Pomp and Circumstance

 Just when Cammie thought she was done with making cards for the graduation season, she was called upon to make a couple more cards for a special graduation.  I think this card is a true wowzer because it looks great and is super simple to make.  The hardest part is making the super cute tassle.  All you need is cardstock, the Bigshot and the Stampin Up Perfect Pennants Bigz L die #123126 to create the realistic gown.  Imagine using the school colors of the graduate to personalize it even more.  I am definately going to bookmark this card for next years grads.

MDS Congrats

 Today’s post features a hybrid card using the MDS card front that I designed and then uploaded to staples to print.  Turned out great.  Then I customized each card to match the school colors.  Love how it turned out but cannot believe how many graduations we have this year.  Cha Ching.
