A Quick Graduation Card

I needed a quick graduation card and let me tell you this one was quick. In under 15 minutes I was done. Now keep in mind this is not counting the time I spent on the Print Artist program making the graduation caps. Actually the cap was in the program, I just re-sized it and duplicated it until the page was full. SO I did have the paper done ahead of time. Much like you would just grab a piece of decorative paper from your stash!!!

I have always loved this layout and for this little graduation cap it was perfect. The gal who is graduating is from Blaine and this is the school colors!! I will post this and head off to the party that starts in a few minutes.

The measurements for this card are as follows:

Cut your card stock or decorative paper (top layer) 2-7/8" x 4"
The white layer is cut at 3" x 4-1/8"
The bigger blue layer is 3-1/2" x 4-1/2"
and the base of the card is a piece of white card stock cut in half and then that half folded in half.

I used the 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" punch for the circles. The had was stamped on a piece of scrap white an taped behind the layered circles. Those two layers were set on the bigger blue layer using Dimensionals. I taped that to the base of the card (the white folded piece). I had forgotten to add the ribbon but that was ok because the Dimensionals raised that part of the card up enough that I was able to slip the ribbon under it and still tie the bow!

Now to grab an envelope and go!!

Thanks SO much for visiting today,
