Graduation Invitations

     A co-worker asked me if I would make some invitations for her daughter's graduation from Xavier University.  I made three samples for her to choose from. Of course I used Xavier's colors: dark blue, silver, gray and white.

    The first one is non-traditional as it doesn't scream graduation. I stamped the stars from Star Prints in Versamark on navy card stock, and embossed them with silver. I fussy cut the stars.(Usually, I use my Wishblade to cut the stars, but since I only had 3 to cut out, it was easier to hand cut them vs setting up my machine)

    The second card is more traditional bearing a mortarboard & diploma.This was their choice. I used my daughter's Cricut machine to make the cap. I doctored it up to make it 3D. The diploma stamp is a PSX rubber stamp I purchased back in 1999. It has seen many graduations.

     An up close shot of the graduation items.

   The last one is my favorite. I love the oval limitless layer die on this one.

         These should be pretty easy to make. Besides I only need to make ten. Thanks for stopping by.

Carol these are all fantastic! You did an amazing job. I really like the last one too. My Limitless ovals are en route to me with my `I bought way too much` PTI order. LOL

Oops I didn`t finish. What font did you use for your script?

They are all great. How nice of you to make these. I wonder, which is your favorite, and which did you friend choose? I think my fave is the second one. That cap is just too cute.

Wow, these are all great!! I love the glittery stars on the first invite. But I also love the scalloped ovals on the 3rd! Tough to choose a favorite!
