Graduation Card: Silhouette Project Idea

I am back at school today. Melissa is taking a break from Silhouette School and I am Karen Marie from Dragonfly & Lily Pads substituting for her while she takes a well deserved break. In next few weeks I bet many of you have a graduation or two to celebrate. I thought a graduation gift card would be a useful tutorial for this time of year.

I chose to use the graduation gift card template from Silhouette. I made a picture frame mat for an 8"x 10" picture to make good use my yellow paper.

I separated the pattern by copying and pasting the pieces according to the color paper I used black with these.

 Who loves the sound of the Silhouette Cameo running smoothly? I know I do!

Here are the pieces to assemble the card. In the background you can see I used the mat and word Graduation to make a frame for my sons graduation. He will be earning a Masters Degree in Communications in the next few weeks. Yes I am proud and he already has a job waiting for him after graduation. Hooray!

The card needed a little depth. I added yellow & brown tape, gray & brown Sharpie Markers to create more layers.

This wonderful gift can be customized by changing the colors to your graduates school colors.

Actually, I haven't got ptoblems with my writing assignments too as I got used to checking out custom writing company review and finding out about reputable essay writing services.
