Hi! It is hard for me to believe that my oldest is graduating in a few short weeks from High School. I’ve been busy working on her invitations but took a little break yesterday to make a graduation card featuring her school colors. I LOVE it!!
I had seen the Impossible Fold card created by Dawn Griffith and thought it would be perfect for a graduation card. I must say, I am sorry to see the Large Number dies and stamp set retiring this month. If you do not have these (at least the dies) add them to your list! Better yet – get them here now! They are great not only for graduation, but birthday, anniversary, and even New Years cards. They are also great for scrapbooking layouts.
For this card, I used Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Whisper White for my color scheme. The “1” is a piece of printer paper rolled up and tied with retired Cherry Cobbler baker’s twine. The sentiment is from Beautiful Boutique and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. The Graduation hat is made using Basic Black cardstock. I hope her friends will like them!
Tune in to my Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live on May 8 at 7:30pm EST to see just how to make this fun card!

A quick note on May’s promotion Share What You Love Bundle. This bundle is a sneak peek of new products being introduced in June – but you can get your hands on it now!

Great use of that card style, with a graduation card. It’s the first I’ve seen decorated for graduation, and I love it! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thanks Donna! A gift card will fit on the back side of the 2018 panel if you need it….
Thank you for the pdf file link, very much! I needed to know that 3/4″ measurement in from each end, giving me the proper spacing for the numbers in the year! Woot! 🙂
You are welcome! Happy to provide the measurements.
