Grad Announcements and Congrats

Got a graduation in your near future?  Here's another simple idea to get you started!  I used this design for both my son's college open house invitation and congratulation cards for other college grads!

The larger patterned paper square is matted in white, then the center is punched out.  I ran a gold leafing pen around the inside edge of the cutout square opening to give it some definition, then attached the matted grad cap image diagonally using Dimensionals.

I made one version with guys in mind ...

... and another with girls in mind.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
