JustRite Quick DIY Graduation Cards

It's Graduation Season -Let JustRite Help with the Cards

It's graduation season and we all seem to know someone moving up and moving on - whether it's the little darlin's graduating from pre-school to those more seasoned school go-ers moving on from college to their first job in the "real" world.  

Too many parties to attend and summer is now here.  If you live in a place where the summer is way too short and your outside time is precious, you need some quick ideas for cards.  

Let JustRite help keep it super simple yet classic.   They have the best sentiment stamps I have ever seen.  Really - I am blown away by the quality - clear, crisp images.  

My super quick secret is the card matting.

This first card is clean and simple - super quick to make.  My super quick secret is the card matting.  Haaaaaaaaaa I used to cut my own card mats.  Seriously - phooey to that.  My straight edges are crazy and I have to place blame on my paper trimmer - it's killin' me.  I have this old paper trimmer that can't cut a straight line to save itself.  And yet I cannot part with it.  The old girl was the first scrapping item I purchased oh so many years ago.  So we co-exist and I sneak behind her back with JustRite's A2 Card Front Basics Dies DIE-05047.   haaaaaaaaa true!  

So what is A2 Card Front Basics Dies DIE-05047 all about?  This wonderful die set has nesting rectangles that are perfect for card making mats.  You can knock out a few layers at a time and get a few cards done all at once.  Beauty!

The white top layer was first die cut, then embossed.  I added the ribbons and glued/taped then behind the top layer before I glued onto the card.  This way the ribbons look clean and tidy with no frayed edges.
