Graduation Card Ideas

For many, this is the month of a special high school or college graduation.  Do you know someone who is graduating this year?  Wouldn't they love one of these amazing graduation cards?

This first card was a swap card from Fiji and it was created by Susan Campfield.  Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen?  Everything she used is either a die cut or a punch!

Inside the card is a pocket for a gift card or cash.  What graduate wouldn't like one of those?

This next card was a swap I received from my friend and fellow demonstrator, Janet.  This is such a unique card.  The way she scored the card allows it to lie flat in a standard A2 envelope but when it is open, it's like a little shadow box.

This final graduation card was one another I received as a swap when I was in Fiji.  It was created by Jan Burnett.  Here's how to create this card:  Cut card stock to 4 1/4" X 8 1/2".  Score at 2" and 5 1/4".

Inside there is even a pocket for a gift card or a little cash.  Graduates always like that!

Even if you don't have a graduation this year, but you may in the future, this is the stamp set to have!

Here's to the graduate!


  1. what punches did you use to make owl graduation card??? It is awesome!!

    1. I'm so glad you liked the card! It was made by a very talented stamper, Susan. She used the Top Note Die for the top half of the owl and the Circle Collection of Framelits for the lower part of the owl. (The largest circle in the collection is the scallop circle.) Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy stamping!

    2. A couple more details for the owl card:
      The owl body is created using the largest scallop circle in the Circles Collection of Framelits.
      The top of the owl is created using the Top Note Die (scored and folded in half.
      For the light colored oval on the owl's body, I think she used one of the ovals from the Ovals Collection of Framelits.
      The mortar board is a square (more than likely a 1.5" or 2.5" square).
      The eyes are different size circle punches.
