Graduation Slider Card

Graduation Slider Card

It’s that time of the year again…

I found this fun stamp at DRS Designs called “Culmination Graduation Greeting” (#1126K) which I thought was good for college (or grad school) graduates since they were “done” with their education.

This interactive card has a die cut graduate that “runs” across the inside of the card when it is opened.

I needed several of these cards for both female and male graduates.  This is the inside for the guys:

This is actually a card design I made last year but hadn’t shared.  By the time I was ready to photograph and post it, it was well past graduation season so I decided to wait until now.  In addition to the design above, I had also made some with the year.  Change the year, and it works for any graduating class!

The “Class of  2018” was from a digital file that I purchased on Etsy.  (My saved link for that file no longer works.)  The same file for 2019 can be purchased HERE at ThankYouDadDesign.

I purchased the die cuts for the insides of the card from the Silhouette store and cut them with my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine.  The female graduate is from a file called “Graduation” (design #82728) by Studio Ilustrado, and the male graduate is called “Jumping Graduate Boy” (design #197569) by Sarah Bailey.

The background paper is “Black Congrats” (0S-003-00093) from DCWV.  The sentiment on the inside is from the “Flower Builders” set from Gina K Designs.

I made two other slider cards in the past (an anniversary card, and a football themed birthday card).  If you care to see how to make a card like this with a sliding element, check out my tutorial HERE.

I had a little trouble getting the white to look white in the photos.   😦

Thanks for checking out my card projects!
