Hello and welcome to my Blog! Today I will be demonstrating how to make a quick and simple Graduation card. I am working with a new-to-me Graduation die and I am over the moon with the results! The die is the star of the show today, so I wanted to keep the rest of the card front understated and let the focus remain on the intricacies of the die cut and the embossed background.
Scroll down for a list of supplies and card dimensions.
