Graduation Anouncment Cards

Happy Graduation to all 2011 graduates!!!

My daughter will be graduating this year and she wanted a simple graduation announcement card to give to friends and family.

I got this simple idea from My Pink Stamper, she did a video on this card -HERE
I didn't add the string and added the year "2011" to our postcard. My daughter then printed out her graduation info along with a photo of her then we adhered it to the back. They turned out great!

The post card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". The gray cardstock measured 5 1/4" x 4" and I used my Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder for the texture.
Locker talk cricut cartridge for the graduation cap cut at approx. 4" wide. The 2011 was welded using my gypsy, and cut from George and Basic Shapes cricut cartridge, measuring 2 1/2" wide.
