More customized grad cards

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials13 Comments

I recently shared a high school graduation card I made for my niece using the Pinkfresh Studio Adore Alpha dies. This die set has been a hard one to get ahold of but I wanted to share one more card project using the same set as I have more graduations coming and more customization in mind.

I have a relative and a neighbor who will both be attending the University of Wisconsin–Madison (remember when my daughter went there for a semester?), and I wanted to create grad cards in the UW-Madison colors, red and white.

This is really easy to do with paper strips and sticky label paper. I cut a bunch of 1/4 inch strips, glued them down, and used that to cut my panels. Just like that, custom patterned paper for any project! Here is the video showing you how I created this project:

If the alphas have sold out again, please consider clicking on the Notify Me option. You will be notified, but of course, it’s a first come, first sold basis. This set will be re-stocked!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    So great! Now to see if I can adapt any of the supplies I have on hand to make something liek this. I can’t even tell you how much joy it brings me that you’re making cards. Thanks for sharing, Cathy! xo

      HA! I thought of the University of Washington and was confused by the colors until I watched the video.

    Cathy, these are really great cards and I am sure the grads will love them!
    My great niece is graduating HS this year and I made hers in school colours as well. (I made it in her HS colours as I am not sure what Uni. she is attending) and made the front panel to mimic their graduation gowns, with a ‘cash pocket’ on the inside. I am very pleased with the outcome.
    Congrats to YOUR grads!

    Thanks for sharing such great inspiration! I used your idea but made it all with my Silhouette!

    Love this! Adapted what I have to make something very similar. As for the $$ you insert, what are folks giving these days? Very good friends vs. all the other grad parties to which they are invited. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
