Graduation Cards

Last week I made some cards for the 4 graduating girls who go to my church. To get some ideas, I flipped through my online subscription of Cards magazine from Northridge Media – I love how you can bookmark your favorite pages and make notes and how I don’t have to store all the actual magazines.

Anyway, here’s what I came up with:

GRADUATION CARDS

Something I’ve started doing a lot lately is using several strands of that skinny and inexpensive Offray ribbon. I punch two holes right next to each other, thread the ribbon through with a yarn needle, and tie a knot. I love how it gives me more color and dimension. Butterflies are also one of my favorite things right now and I loved using girly colors!

Congrats to all of your graduates this year!

How unique! I like how colorful they are and how rich in texture they look.

Very pretty graduation cards–I like how they are non-traditional (no cap and gown or diplomas). Thanks for the tip on the ribbon–I have a lot of that on hand and it makes it so festive.
