Graduation Cards | Simon Says Stamp | Sunny Days Ahead Release


Graduation Cards | Simon Says Stamp | Sunny Days Ahead Release

Yay, Simon Says Stamp is Shipping Again! So happy to hear because I need to do some shopping 😁

My cards today feature the new GRAD HAT DIES from the SUNNY DAYS AHEAD Release. These were all pretty quick and simple to make and will be perfect to send to a 2020 Graduate that will need some extra love this year.

CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I cut out the GRAD HATS using only the top layer of the die using various colors of cardstock to create a rainbow of hats. I then pieced and glued them together.

To the middle of the square card, I stamped out the "Heck Yeah" from the CZ Design TABBED SENTIMENTS stamp set.

I then arranged the hats in a circle pattern, making them as equally distanced as possible and then popped them in place using foam tape.

To embellish and finish the card I added some PRISM GEM stickers and just glued it to a black square 5-inch card panel.

For this next card, I used the GRAD HAT DIES again, cutting both layers using black cardstock. I did stack a couple of the top layers together to create dimension. For the tassel, I used a silver foil cardstock and then just added a black gem to the center of the hat and tassel.

Next, I stamped the sentiments onto the card panel using stamps from the CZ DESIGN GREAT THINGS stamp set. Before gluing the hat in place, I die cut the panel using a frame from the STITCHED RECTANGLES Dies.

I then popped the panel up with foam tape and adhered it to grey cardstock that I had glued onto an A2 sized card base.

The GRAD HAT on this last card was done the same way as the previous card only using white on the tassel and a clear stone on the center of the cap.

I then just die cut the top card piece of cardstock using the BEST DAY EVER DIE and used the negative piece. Behind it, I glued the negative die cut pieces onto a piece of back cardstock that I then popped up using black foam tape. I then trimmed down the top panel leaving a black border and glued that onto the card base.

To finish the card I added some SILVER FEVER FUSION SEQUINS on the card front.

And that is pretty much how I created these simple graduation cards. I love how they turn out.

Sending a huge shoutout to all the 2020 graduates! I'm sure this was not what any one of them ever imagined would be happening during their final year of school, but more then ever they need to be celebrated and get the recognition that they deserve. So if you know anyone that is graduating, send them a cardπŸ’›
