Weekend Flair #6 - Graduation Cards

Supply List:
  • Green Cardstock
  • Black Cardstock
  • One Black Brad (Heidi Swapp)
  • Glue Dots
  • Green Tassel (Jolee's Sticker)
  • Embossing Powder (Enchanted Gold)
  • Versa Craft Ink (White)
  • Hero Arts Stamp ("Congratulations")
  • Cricut Jasmine Font
I first cut the green card stock to 9x4 inches and the black card stock to 3 3/4 x 8 3/4. I fastened the black onto the green.

Using additional green card stock, I used my cricut (with Jasmine font) to cut "KRISTI".

Then used my sticked maker (Xyron 150) to add adhesive to the letters.

I laid the tassel and stamp on the card to assist in placing the letters vertically in the correct spot on the on the right side of the black card stock.

I used the white versa mark ink and the stamp to put "Congratulations" on the bottom of the card, sprinkled embossing powder over it, and then used a heat tool to complete the embossing process.

I used the brad and a glue dot to affix the tassel.

I created a couple other similar cards, as seen below.

What creative projects have you worked on this weekend?


  1. Those cards are great! I am not at all creative and/or crafty.

  2. Those look great! Someday I need to come scrapbook with you and you can teach me how to do all of this fun stuff. I'm a very low tech scrapbooker! What do you use for envelopes when you make cards? Do you make those too?

  3. These cards fit really nicely into a #10 envelope! I have never made envelopes for my cards, always just purchased a box of plain ones.

  4. Love these! How creative.

    I'm not crafty, so I just have to admire the cool things you make. :)

  5. Holy crap! Those are too cute. You have such high tech crafting machines! :)

  6. Those cards are amazing! Good work! I would love to have a Cricuit!

  7. You are way too talented to be! Those are so cute. I love scrapbooking stuff, but actually doing it...not so much. Then again, I don't have the professional scrapbooking aresenal like you!

  8. The cards look great! I bet you can't wait until Friday!

  9. So cute! Okay, but you really know someone named Bruno? That is awesome :)

  10. I wish I had a machine like that. the most creative thing Ive done this week, was changing my header image on my other blog, Random Thoughts of La
    I draw it with 'paint', a simple program in windows. (or may be it's not simple at all, I just took the simple part to work with)

  11. how can I forgot to say the most important thing, that made my mouth open for few seconds...
    you are so creative!

  12. You are *so* crafty. This weekend, I uh, uhm...I worked. Does that count?!? :-)

  13. How very creative! I love these cards. Fantastic idea. I don't know anyone graduating this year but I will save this idea for the future.
