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 (retired?). 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!

It is amazing what your creative mind can come up with. The white is very white for me, so you did a good job on that too.
Awesome idea! This is a hit for any celebration.
Fantastic card design and sure to make that graduate so happy.
Clever Lisa. The moving graduate is perfect for a graduation card.
The saying is sooooo fun as is the cool interactive feature on the inside! Well done, once again, Lisa!! You are very talented!
