Graduation Invitation


My little boy is graduating from middle school in a few weeks! Where has the time gone? This is one of the invitations I made for our family, to invite them to the big event.

I used my Gypsy to weld my "GRAD" letters, cut from Don Juan at 1.3". I copied this to use later for my polka dotted layer. Then I welded a 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" rectangle to "GRAD", resulting in a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card to score at 4 1/4" (perfect for an A2 sized envelope). The yellow strip is 5 1/2" x 3/4".

Recipe:

All supplies Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted

Cardstock: Enchanted Evening, Lemon Tart, and Kraft
Stamp Sets: "For the Graduate" and "Polka Dot Basics"
Ink: Enchanted Evening and Dark Chocolate
Die: "Mat Stack 1" (layered with a punched 1 3/4" circle)

Recollections Brads
