Grad Season is upon us!




I have a few of my young cousins graduation this year and over the next few years. I was commissioned by my Aunt to make a few for her and she’s requested that I use the colours of the graduate’s dress. In this case, purples.

I used the set Great Grads – what a wonderful set!

The card base is Almost Amethyst. The large square is Elegant Eggplant and then layered with Lovely Lilac and then Whisper White.

I stamped the square worded background in Almost Amethyst and then the “G” circle right on top in Elegant Eggplant. I stamped that same “G” image again in Lovely Lilac on some scrap cardstock and punched it out with my 1 1/4″ circle punch. It is added to the card with a dimensional.

I tied some white striped organza along the top of the card and popped out the stones from three Rhinestone Brads and adhered then on with some Tombow Multi Adhesive.

Lastly, I stamped the congratulations stamp, again from Great Grads, in Amethyst in the lower right corner.

Stay tuned for a few more samples with this set!

  1. Carrie, this design if FANTASTIC! My daughter graduates from high school in May, and I’ve been thinking for several weeks how I should probably get started on graduation cards for her friends. Now, you’ve totally inspired me with this awesome card! Thank you! GREAT job!

  3. OK.. got to say the second card is my very favorite. Love the colors too!

  4. Great layout – clean and simple. Love it!

  5. What a wonderful Graduation card! You’ve inspired me to get going on my daughter’s grad card!

  6. Love those stamps overlapped! Wouldn’t have thought to overlap them w/out seeing this. TFS!

  7. This is terrific…..I have a grandson graduating next June (we’re keeping our fingers crossed) and many friends who have kids graduating this year so this is perfect for me and I won’t have to worry about a separate design for each!

  8. Wow, that is perfect for a graduation card. Very simple and slightly elegant!
