Graduation Cards with Crafting Jewish Style

It's that time of year again when everyone is busy with end-of-school activities and of course, graduation. Whether your children or loved ones are graduating from kindergarten, elementary school, high school, or college-it's a cause for celebration!

Here are 2 sample cards and a tag to get your creativity flowing. They are crafted primarily out of cardstock and CJ Style paper-so it's easy and economical to make multiples of them. Working with these basic designs, use whatever letter stickers or rub-ons that you have handy to craft your own graduation cards.
This simple-to-craft graduation card was created using the CJ Style Hannukah paper and DCWV heavy cardstock and some AC alpha stickers and a K&Co. rub-on. The min-dot Hannukah borders adds a layer of trim under the white cardstock. Cutting one edge with a scalloped scissor adds a nice touch.

This pretty-in-pink card was accented with a polka dot tag from the Passover collection- graphic border strip was layered in the center to cover the Passover saying. K&Co. letters and mini bird add a whimsical touch.

Neat tip: Use your leftover paper scraps to create a pretty tag to attach to your gift.
