ConGRADulations!

I love to make my own greeting cards to share with friends and family.  Although not everyone appreciates the effort, I feel like it is sending a little more love than buying one off the store shelf.  Here are a set of graduation cards I made recently.

Grad Cards

These cards are made using Creative Memories current line of graduation products.  We offer a set of stickers and a package of paper.  The paper is stunning and most of it can be used for many occasions other than graduation.  Weddings, retirements, anniversaries are just a few of the other uses for this beautiful paper.  A number f CM tools were used including the newest “notebook” cartridge for the BorderMaker and the “circle tag” for the ShapeMaker.  One trick I employed to add a little texture to the cards was to pop up many of the title blocks.  Since these were actually stickers, I needed to de-sticky them first which I did by dipping them in cornstarch (baby powder works too).

Hope these inspire you to offer your congratulations to the graduates in your life!
