Graduation Season is Upon Us!

Handmade Graduation Announcement
Handmade Graduation Announcements

Graduation season is almost here and I am proud to announce that my daughter Katie will be graduating from high school this June. 

The end of the school year is always a busy time. But when your student is a senior, the frenzy gets kicked into high gear! There's prom, grad bash, senior picnic and senior breakfast. Final exams need to be taken, financial aid forms to fill out, and college schedules to prepare. And last but not least are the graduation announcements and party invitations. 

We created these glittery handmade graduation announcement in her school colors. They are gorgeous and uniquely hers!

A Few Details:

  • The glitter numbers were cut out of Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer Paper and then matted with royal blue paper.  
  • We used the Extreme Fonts cartridge and the Cricut machine set to 1 1/2".  
  • The Orange paper on the front of card was given some texture with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and my Big Shot.
  • We printed the graduation information in blue ink to match the announcements and then matted it on orange card stock on the inside of the announcements.

  • Card Stock:
