Graduation Announcements for Fran

You've probably heard me say before how much I enjoy making and designing cards for other people...  Well, this post is about another of those instances.  I was commissioned by Fran to make graduation announcements for her very special daughter.  Fran loved the finished product and that made my day!  I hope you enjoy the cards too.  Maybe they will inspire you to make something for a graduate in your life.

This is how the card looks closed:


And this is with the belly band removed:



Some of my favorite Stampin' Up! products used in this project are: our wonderfully strong cardstock and our fabulous silver cardstock.  To order these or any other Stampin' Up! products, please visit my store HERE.

Barb, I don't really have a recipe. Using a 12x12 piece of cardstock, I just made sure the middle portion of the card would fit in a standard envelope. I made two score lines so the sides would fold over and then cut the corners to form the "neck" of the gown. After I had the shape I wanted, I copied it for the others.
