And of course you are all invited to attend! HA HA HA
I chose to make an easel card for my daughters graduation announcement. I think the ones that you order through the school are nice but I wanted something that was just a little more memorable and functional. I don't know about you guys but with my family they are more concerned with the picture than the announcement....and there better be a picture! I think I might have to make a few more but for now I am stopping at 45...for now, for today.
We chose to use 3 different pictures for the announcements so that not all family members got the same picture. Now which recipient gets which picture is beyond me and since they are in the envelopes already I am not going to check! *okie notices she misspelled recipient and is glad for spell check*
I made the cards the standard A2 size of 4.25 x 5.5 inches. I had to crop the 4x6 pictures to 3.5 x 4.75 inches. The white mat is 3.75 x 5 inches and the blue mat is 4 x 5.25 inches. The photo corners are a Martha Stewart punch.
For the announcement part on the inside I cut a piece of blue cardstock at 4 x 3.25 inches and the white is x 3.75 inches. I printed 6 announcements to a sheet of white cardstock and then cut accordingly. For the place card *okie isn't sure if that is what it is called but decides that is what she is going to call it* I cut blue cardstock I used George to cut a 2 x 4 inch piece of cardstock and then used Cursive 101 to cut the 2010. I then place it over a piece of white cardstock at at the same size. The Senior is cut from Cursive 101 and I used Design Studio to weld the letters. I cut the shadow from burgandy and top layer from white *okie thinks...well duh okie they can see the dang thing is white!* With the placecard being layered it was enough ledge to hold the picture to make it stand so I didn't need to add a border.
I used a glitter pen to dot around the photo corners and on the lettering to give it a little glitz. And of course you can click the picture if you would like to see more detail.
