Using diagonal stripes for my homemade card ideas is often challenging for me. When I buy a paper stack, sometimes there is a diagonal pattern print included and it's usually the last piece I use but I was able to use it for my graduation card ideas.

For this handmade card making project, I downloaded clip art of a cap and diploma and used it as a feature point. I included text to say "Congratulations Class of 2011" but you can change the text if you are using a computer.

To break up the diagonal stripes on this graduation card design, I added a red border around the sentiment and ribbon along the bottom. I also added a black border around the red border since the red needed to be "anchored" down.

Use a little bit of vellum for handmade graduation cards. I created a little tag that I printed on vellum paper and cut the same size tag from grey paper which I placed behind the vellum. The tag doesn't have to be vellum but make sure the paper weight is heavy enough so it doesn't rip when ribbon is inserted through it. I added the black brad to cover up the little hole and to tie all the colors together.

Making graduation cards with diagonal stripes is a bit challenging but try to break up the stripes so the card doesn't look too busy.
