Graduation Cards for Her


First, don't forget, Free Shipping ends today!

These graduation cards are for a customer's daughter and her two roommates who are graduating from college.  Since they're roommates, I wanted the cards to be similar but not exactly the same.  Keep reading below to see the other two cards.

I used Elegant Eggplant and Summer Starfruit which are close to their school colors.  At first I didn't want to use Summer Starfruit because, honestly, it just isn't one of my favorite colors.  However, this one last sheet of DSP (from last year's SAB) seemed to be just what I needed.  Maybe Summer Starfruit isn't so bad after all. :)

The Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die (retiring) worked perfectly for the numbers, and I used my Silhouette Cameo for the graduation cap.  I'm not brave enough to try cutting glimmer paper in the Cameo just yet.

Here are the supplies for this first card:

Stamps:
None

Paper:
Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
     5-1/2x8-1/2 Card Base
     5x1-1/2 Embossed Strip
Summer Starfruit Card Stock
     5x2-1/4 Scalloped Layer
Basic Black Card Stock
     Scrap for Hat
Champagne Glimmer Paper
     Scraps for Numbers

Ink:
None

Accessories:

This is card #2, and below are the supplies for this card.  It's difficult to see in the picture because the color is off, but the "congrats grad" was stamped with Elegant Eggplant and the hat and scroll were stamped with Basic Black.

     4-1/4x11 Card Base

This final card probably looks familiar.  It's the same layout as the card from my last post.  (Note that the circle is 2-1/8", and I used my Cameo to cut it.)  Here are the specific supplies for this card:
