2017 Graduation Cards

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I was asked to make a few graduation cards. Since my time was very limited, I chose to do some simple cards for the senior guys using the school colors. Papers are Recollections and cards measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Cricut Cartridges:
Simple Everyday Cards - The red Good Luck card is cut 8.571" wide x 5.548" high.
Anna's Garden Cards & Embellishments - Sentiment is written on a 3.75" wide x 4" high white paper using a Pilot Precise V5 blue pen. This is used inside the card.


Simple Everyday Cards - The blue Best of Luck to You card is cut 8.498" wide x 5.50. That size
Thoughts and Phrases -The Little Things - Sentiment is written on a 2.927" wide x 3.25" high white paper using the same blue pen as listed above. This is used inside the card.

I hand cut a piece of paper to make a little pocket for each card. The area can be used for a gift card or cash.

The two cards for the kindergarten boys are also 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock.
Cricut Cartridges:
Wrap It Up - Graduate is cut 4" wide x 3.95" high. I also used school colors for these two cards.
Cake Basics - Best Wishes is cut 3.75" wide x 1.712" high. This image is used inside. I do not have an available photo.
Just for fun, I added some pencil and star stickers that I have had for ages! Also I added some dash marks on the hat using the Gelly Roll pen.
