A new Graduation card or invite

WOW a Graduate! Maia and I spent a ton of time with these cool invites for her high school grad party . its coming up FAST too!
Ok, really? They were a cinch to create! Heres what we did...
we found some cool sayings online for grad invites, and basically switched out the details. Then thanks to my friend Heather , we put the details on a postcard template so four to a page printing. Then we printed them out on Vellum.
Underneath, we used the Circle Sampler and 5 colors of Palette ink pads to create the colorful background. You cant see it as cute as it looks, its lighter here.
We layered the white stamped piece onto black, and put the vellum over, and punched through the layers. I dont know about you, but layering vellum can be a mess sometimes so this was super fast and nothing shows! There is no adhesive, just the ribbon to hold it.
Last we tied on the ribbon. If you have not done this, its a sweet look for any invite or special card. we punched through in two small rectangular shapes. I have a fiskars punch for this. Then we slipped the ribbon through from the front, crossed in the back and pulled the ends through the holes. Finally we just snipped the ribbon ends.
I hope you liked it!!
