Happy Graduation! Handmade Card Ideas to Celebrate Your Grad! {New from Impression Obsession}

Graduation season is almost upon us and it's so special to honor the grads in our life with handmade cards and gifts. It's a season filled with nostalgia and celebration and maybe a teensy bit of stress as we help our graduates cross the finish line. Make your graduates a card, gift card holder, or party decor that's customized just for them, using their school colors. They'll love the extra thought and time you put in to celebrate their accomplishments. Today I'll share some simple ideas you can start with, to knock out your graduation cards in no time!

All of today's cards begin with the adorable graduation cap die set, so let's start there. This new die set from Impression Obsession includes the pieces to make two caps, one slightly larger than the other. Each cap only has three pieces, so it's quite simple to assemble. You can mix and match with colors - I even used some glittered cardstock for added sparkle!

The striped cards below are a great way to bring school colors into the design. Cut strips into assorted heights, and then layer them together onto a card base. I made both of these cards at the same time, so it was quick and easy. Plus, since I die cut the graduation caps at the same time, I had everything I needed all at once. A die cut landing spot, and a simple stamped sentiment finished off these cards in no time!
Lastly, a few die cut clouds and graduation caps were all I needed to assemble this festive grad card. Remember, graduation caps don't have to be black! It's another fun way to personalize your card especially for your graduate.
