Graduation Announcement

Clean & Simple – One Layer Card

Happy Monday!

Another quick card to share with you today. This is a clean and simple, one layered graduation announcement card.

The finished card is an A2 size (5.5″ x 4.25″) and the main panel is 4.75″ x 3.5″.

I stamped the graduation cap and diploma first and covered them a quick fussy cut post-it note mask and then stamped the paper scroll and the Class of 2021 sentiment.

If I was stamping multiples cards as when sending out announcements, using a Misti (or other stamping platform) is a must! I would stamp each step (example: Step #1 graduation cap) on each card panel (for how ever many I needed plus a few extra for good measure), first before moving onto the next step. This is when having multiple Mistis really come in handy and I have an assembly line going. One Misti for each stamp layer. 🙂

NOTE: I would also use MASKING MAGIC mask paper from Therm O Web for the masks. This product holds up really well for multiple stamping and the ink doesn’t bleed through (like eventually the post-it note will).

Card was created using: Graduation Multi Step Clear Stamps and Ever After Castle Greetings Multi Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

Please remember to check in with the KSS Design Team and see what inspiration they have cooked up for you this week.
