Picture of Graduation Cap Card
My sister in law was graduating and I wanted to make up a card for her.  I used the technique from my Clover Patch Card and I love the effect.

Tip: If you want something to be fancy or classy, it's gotta be in black and white.

So the main piece was done the same way as the Clover Patch Card.

I got a graduation cap silhouette and copy and pasted it flipped and turned and then just copied and pasted this over and over covering a full 4 by 5.5 rectangle. (Photos 1-5)

Once that is ready, you can get the other piece.

First, we are going to have a white piece to write on and then a black piece to frame it.  Using a 4 by 5.5 inch rectangle, decide how big these rectangles are going to be (Photo 6)

Taking a silhouette of a diploma and copy and flip the duplicate. Lastly, type out what you want. 

When you go to cut, everything needs to be separated from each other, except the text and the smallest rectangle if you have the pen attachment.

  • 1 - 4 by 5.5 inch rectangle to be cut out in black
  • 1 - 4 by 5.5 inch rectangle with graduation caps to be cut out in white
  • 1 - 4 by 3 inch rectangle to be cut out in black
  • 1 - 3.5 by 2.5 inch (white paper) rectangle with text, use pen attachment with text and then cut out before ejecting mat.
  • 2 - diplomas to be cut out in black (don't worry about the little pieces cut out, you can throw those away)
I like your card. I could never do that
