Graduation Thank You

Creative Tips:

1. Monogrammed cards are so fun and easy. Basic Black and Whisper White paired with a pop color like Real Red is always a stunning card. This one will be great for my son who has several to mail out. I created 30 of these yesterday afternoon.  The idea is compliments of a recent design team pal, Connie Babbert. She is an awesome designer and I love her blog.

2. To create the monogram, I punched the Whisper White card stock using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. When attached to the card base, the circle fills with Basic Black. The “B” monogram is from the set, Lovely Letters and is punched with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. You place the monogram in the center of the Basic Black Circle and your personalized card is complete. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

3. The design is from the stamp set Elements of Style. I stamped it first using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and then turned the Whisper White card stock 180 degrees and stamped a second time. This is quickly becoming a new favorite from the Summer Mini catalog.

Graduation Invitations

Creative Tips:

1. I created 50 of these for my oldest son’s college graduation. The More Mustard piece is a pullout revealing the graduation exercise information. The text is done using Adobe Illustrator where I set up the type and placement. It was printed directly to the card stock and then cut to size.

2. The Class of 2010 tab is attached on the right side only. This construction creates leverage to hold the flap down.

3. The left flap wraps the invite and is sealed using a gold foil sticker. I purchased these from a party store.

4. The photo is attached using Dotto adhesive. It can be easily removed if the receiver desires to keep it.
