Graduation Greeting Card

Make a graduation greeting card with clip art and glitter. For homemade card ideas, download images from the web and create your own graduation cards.

For many of my paper card making ideas, I often go to Microsoft's website to access all kinds of clip art. I found an image of a cap and diploma for this graduation card design. I added a little bit of glitter to the tassle and diploma ribbon.

I used pattern paper that had "Congratulations" printed on it. For this handmade card making project, I placed a small section of it on the side and then added a strip of black paper and red ribbon. If you want your handmade card ideas to be all paper, replace the red ribbon with a strip of red paper.

This handmade graduation card is pretty simple to make once the clip art is cut and glittered. For your graduation card ideas, you can switch out the red for another color, like the graduates school colors. Scroll below for instructions on how to make this graduation card.

If you want to go with a safe color for your card, here's an idea using shades of grey. Again, using free clip art, I used a a cap image for the focal point. The sentiment was printed on vellum paper. Using my border bunch, I created the scallop rectangular shape to hold the sentiment.
