Stampin' Up BYOP and Celebrate Today Graduation card Curvy Keepsakes Graduation box

Saturday Series Graduation card and Curvy Keepsakes Box

 It's graduation time !! So today for my Saturday Series I wanted to share  a couple graduation cards and a treat box. If you have been following my blog, on Saturdays I like to showcase certain products so today it's graduation!!! I used the BYOP stamp set that is full of great sayings, not just for graduation. I also used the Celebrate Today stamp set, also another great stamp set that can be used for all types of occasions.

So here's my graduation combo:

Can you guess the colors of our local the high school?? ha-ha!!  Don't you just love this little graduation  combo??

For this card I used the BYOP stamp set, and did you notice the embossing on the red background?? I used the new Brick Wall Framelit. I embossed it first then daubed it with Sahara Sand and Early Espresso  here and there to make the brick look worn and to make them POP!!

I really like how this card turned out!! The tassel  and the star were cut out of the Silver Foil paper to make a big impression!! Do you recognize which framelit I used to cut the tassel?  It's the Balloon Framelits, the little balloon tie makes a great tassel!! I love it when one tool can be used for several things!!  I cut the  Mortar hat I cut on the trimmer, lining the angle on the grid to make a perfect diamond. To make the bottom part of the hat I used half of  1/2" circle on both sides of a square punch to make the point. What do you think?? This just takes a little practice, and it will come out perfect!

This sweet little card is a peek-a-boo card. The card base is 4 14/" x 11 inches. After I scored and folded it, I took the trimmer and removed 3/4" on the front panel. I embossed the balloon string with Silver Embossing powder. The fun string on top is the silver filament on the Silver Baker's twine, I just pulled the filament off and it really adds  twirly fun and interest!!

This is what the inside of the card looks like!! The Silver foil strips on the side, add to all the silver elements!! Very cute. This could easily be a birthday card, just change the sentiment!! WAY CUTE!!! This card instantly says...Way to go graduate!!

Here's a graduation Curvy Keepsakes box!! Is that the cutest thing you have ever seen?!!  It almost makes me want to graduate again....Ok maybe not!!

Would this be adorable at a graduation party? Or a fun way to give cash or a little gift!! LOVE IT!! The square on top is 2 3/4' x 2 3/4", to get it to fit on the Curvy Keepsakes box, I used my Trimmer to cut a slit about an inch long, and slid the top of the Curvy Keepsake box through the slit!! Perfect!! I made a tassel out of Whisper White Baker's Twine. To make the tassel, I took a 2 inch piece of cardstock and wrapped the baker's twine around about 7 times. Then I took a small piece of bakers twine and tied a knot around the top part, leaving a little "neck", then after knot secured, take another small piece of baker's twine and loop it through the top loops, and this is how you secure it. Then you cut the ends all the same length. Cute and easy!! I got his idea from Rebecca Massey, she is in our monthly demonstrator meetings.

 Our group is fun and shares ideas and supports one another. If you are interested in joining a group that is strong and supportive, this is for you!! If you would like more info, just email me at

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you feel inspired if you have any graduates this year!!

Have a blessed day!!

  1. These are great projects for graduation. Thanks for the tips on cutting the grad cap, I'll be practicing that one. I'd already made a Peek A Boo Top Flip card that looks very similar to yours in Night of Navy and Gold Foil, so great minds. I was encouraged to try that out after seeing something else posted on Stampin' Connection and that is an awesome card style. Thanks for sharing all your projects, Loved them!
