Graduation Cards

Congrats for the graduate…..

Finished Size:  3 1/4 x 4 3/4
Penny Black has wonderful alphabet and number sets.  Everything from small script to bold block letters.  This transparent number set appropriately titled “Who’s Counting?” contains doodled numbers that are 1 ½ inches tall making them fun to color and a snap to trim.

Big polka dots stamped in two colors and crystal Stickles add to the festivity.  The cap is from A Scholar.

This is another graduation card that I made for last year which was published in Crafts ‘n Things June 2010.

It has a pocket on the inside to tuck a little something for the grad.
