I make lots of graduation cards, so I need a card design that I can easily make in the school colors of the graduate. I used the new Stylish Shapes dies for the banner pieces.
Card Base: Cut Basic Black 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Basic White 4 X 5 ¼.
Card Front: Cut Pacific Point (or color appropriate for your school) 3 ⅞ X 5 ⅛. Emboss this with the Gingham embossing folder. Attach embossed card front to white mat, attach these to black card base.
Use the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the banner pieces for the card front. Cut the largest banner from Basic Black. Cut the shorter, widest banner from Basic White. Stamp sentiment from Hello Beautiful stamp set with black ink on the Basic White banner. Attach the white stamped banner to the black banner with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Attach banners to the card front.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Basic White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
