Happy Graduation: Make These Two Cards for Your Favorite Graduates!

It's Theme Day on the Impression Obsession blog today, and we're celebrating the graduates in our lives with graduation themed card ideas.

Today's first card begins with a stencil set I've been sharing quite a lot lately. The A4 Windows Stencils from Impression Obsession includes 4 different stencils - today's card features the four-square stencil. After inking the squares, it creates the perfect landing spot for the stamped starry square images, plus a die-cut graduation cap. I finished up the card with a stamped sentiment, some white gel pen details, and a bit of patterned paper. 
Next up, another card with the cute die cut grad cap. For extra pizazz, consider cutting part or all of the cap from glitter cardstock - so festive and fun! HERE'S A TIP! Trying to find the perfect patterned paper for your grad card? Create your own by stamping graduation sentiments across a cardstock panel. The tiny stars in this stamp set are the perfect filler for any awkward blank spots. 
To make your grad cap stand out, consider adding a shadow layer underneath, in a contrasting color. I used a matte silver cardstock so that the dark cap on dark cardstock would still POP.
Don't forget, the IO designers all have lots of great graduation inspiration for you today! Be sure to check out all the ideas and then get crafting on your own grad projects.
