My husband is an instructor (for some reason he prefers this title rather than “teacher”) and so I’m always asked to make some graduation cards for his students. Its an especial time at YouLearn.ca because it is an adult learning situation and many of the students are … grandparents! Really!
I find myself wanting to make a completely unique card when requested - and that nice for YOU because I love to give my files away. Here are the three cards I made and a tutorial on how to make the tassel for the Grad hat and I’ll link to the download for the zipped folder of .studio files as well. (I’ll also put a copy under the .studio TAB up top of the blog so you can always come retrieve or re-download should you lose them!)
I created this first card to be “letter” envelope size so that I would be sure to have an envelope ready. I don’t recall the designer paper for this one, you could almost get away using a piece of foolscap? The butterfly and flourish stamp is from Inkadinkadoo.
I have been admiring some super simple cards lately and decided to try one for myself.
I added a little diploma roll onto this one, it would be so easy to make!
Here is the tutorial for how to make the hat:

I’ll end with a few photos I’ve taken and a few beautiful words:
Never lose and opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are two worlds; the world that we can measure with line and rule, and the world that we feel with our hearts and imagination.
We are living in a world of beauty but how few of us open our eyes to see it! What a different place this would be if our senses were trained to see and hear! We are the heirs of wonderful treasures from the past: treasures of literature and of the arts. They are ours for the asking - all our own to have and to enjoy, if only we desire them enough.
