Recollections Glittery Graduation Cards

Graduation Cards

I’m starting to feel old when the children of friends I knew when they were pregnant are now graduating from college!

Children of two friends are graduating from the same school Mr. C and I went to, so I had to go all out with school colors for the University of Washington …purple and gold. I found the perfect glitter Recollections papers at Michaels.

I haven’t figured out how to really capture the sparkle of the glitter in photos.

The cards are 5x7 and I cut the papers for the front to 4.75 width and then layered them as shown. Stamped the sentiments with clear embossing ink and used Recollections gold sparkle embossing powder.

Graduation Card Words

Really good that I paid close attention to all of the words on this stamp because one card is for a guy and one is for a girl and wouldn’t want to send the one with “Atta Girl” to the wrong person.

Recollections Gold and Purple Glitter

I had some paper bag filler stuff in my party stash so I pulled some out and stick it to the card before I put the stamped focal pieces (layered with purple, black, and gold mirror cardstock). 

Finished with stars punched from the gold glitter paper.
