This Calls For a Huge Celebration! Easy Graduation Cardmaking Ideas

Graduation season is upon us and I was excited to pull out some graduation themed rubber stamps and dies to make handmade cards for the graduates in my life. Today I'll share two easy graduation cards that you can make with a few themed crafting supplies. 

Graduation stamps and dies are pretty standard - you'll have a cap with a tassel in just about every set, and some kind of congratulatory sentiment. So even if you don't have the stamps that I've used, I bet you can recreate these ideas with your own items. 

(I'll link up my products at the end of this post in case you want to snag them for your graduation cards and crafts. (Compensated affiliate links provided at no additional cost to you.) 
On this first card I used such a fun die set. The Hats Off Die Set has three dies - the cap top, the base, and the tassel. It's really easy to fold the base, and adhere the pieces together. It's fun to customize the pieces for any color - like your graduate's school colors! For both of today's cards, I used the Celebrate Everything stamp set for the card sentiments. This stamp set is so fabulous for celebration cards of all kinds. You'll find it's perfect for any time there's something big or small to celebrate!

On the next card, I used the graduation cap stamp from the Bravo Grad stamp set. I scattered the image across a cardstock panel and added some confetti (also from Celebrate Everything.) I added just a little watercoloring to the caps. 

Make your graduate's day extra special with a handmade card, gift, or party decor.
