Happy Graduation !!!

Hello everyone!  I'm back with another graduation card today. My husband's nephew is one of those super duper smart people.  Plus he's obviously a boy.  So coming up with a card that wasn't too cutesie was a little tough.  But here is the finished product:

This card is 9.25 x 4.  I had to make a long one in order to get all of "STANFORD" on  It fits perfectly into a regular business size envelope.  All of the different solid colors of cardstock for this card are from Recollections.  The letters are all cut from the Plantin Schoolbook ~ Cricut Cartridge. Such a classic font - I just love it.  If you look closely, you can see that the top layer is the Cardinal Red which is their school colors and then I did a small shadow layer in white.

The sentiments "CONGRATS" and "you are simply the BEST!" are from the My Creative Time ~ Here's Lookin' At You stamp set.  The cute little graduation cap is also from this set.  I cut it out separately and used a pop dot underneath it for a little extra dimension.

The "Class of" and the "2012" are from the My Creative Time ~ Follow Your Dreams stamp set.  And if you look at my beautiful stitching at the top and bottom, that's actually a stamp in the My Creative Time ~ Gift Card Sentiments stamp set.  There's a short one and a longer one for perfect stitching every time!  :)  All of the ink is black ~ Ranger Archival ink.

Well, that's it for today.  Simple, but classic I think.  Perfect for a Stanford grad!  I have one more super funny graduation card that I will show you next week.  So stay tuned for that.  If you appreciate college rivalries, you will totally love it!  Have a great day my friends!   :)

I like the long card. At first I thought you were gonna say to fit all the $$$ without folding the bills LOL but that would work too I guess. Great card!
See you soon!!!!! --C
