Graduation Bridge Card

Graduation Bridge Card

My Nephew is graduating from high school today – Congratulations, Tim!!  This is the card I made for him.

The “Celebrate Edger” die (CEDPC1069) from Creative Expressions was used for the bridge.

I wanted to create the illusion of a group of graduates in the background, and Taylored Expression’s “Graduation Border” die is great for that.   (Unfortunately, real groups of graduates are not possible at this time; like most, Tim’s graduation ceremony is virtual.  I think his school is trying for a modified “in person” ceremony of some sort later in the summer.)

The side panels were embossed with the “Graduation Hat Background” embossing folder by Darice.

The “Class of 2020” panel was a digital file from geographics.com that I sized and printed from my Silhouette software.  It was cut with an pierced rectangle die (unbranded).

The stamp on the back is the “Culmination Graduation Greeting” stamp from DRS Designs.

The base for this bridge card was made with a 10 1/2 x 5 inch piece of heavyweight card stock that was scored at 1 3/4, 3 1/2, 7, and 8 3/4.  When folded flat, this card measures 5 x 7 inches and fits in an A7 size envelope.

  1. What a fantastic design and Tim should love it. I know I do and in the black and white it is so masculine looking as well.

  2. This is awesome. Great design and stamp choices are excellent. Love that culmination verse – very clever. Glad to see you back on line and hope the storm debris is cleared up. You are not the only one who finds it challenging to comment using a mobile phone. I don’t even try anymore.

  4. Great job on this card, Lisa! I love your “class” behind the “celebrate”. Definitely a card to be remembered on this year of will definitely be remembered graduations. Most of the high schools here did drive through ceremonies.
