Hi there,

My daughter graduates from university tomorrow with a 'First' and so I made this simple easy card to celebrate her achievement.

Materials used;

Dies used were

  • Mariannes Collectables – elegant numbers
  • X cut Nesting dies – 5 stars

Firstly I took a piece of black card stock and die cut 6 of the smallest stars and 1 of the largest stars from the nesting die set.

Then I cut one each of the second largest star in white and 1 in silver card.

I then drew a mortarboard hat and cut it out in black. I drew around it with a white gel pen to add some interest.

I also die cut the numbers out of a piece of black card.

I used a piece of A4 hemp cardstock which I folded in half as my card base. I never stick anything down until I am happy with the whole look and placement of the card. I used a combination of glue and 3D mounting tape to add dimension to the numbers and the small silver stars which I place over the small black stars.

Then I cut the base card to size.

Voila! A really quick graduation card which is sure to impress. Congrats!
