Graduation Time at Silhouette Sunday

It is the time of year for graduations and I have both a niece and nephew graduating this year. I am participating in the Weekly Shape Challenge at the Silhouette Blog with this card. The sentiment above is the Weekly Shape and is sold as a vinyl quote. The blog showed several other ways you could use it, but my question- as a rookie- was could you use it with paper and on a card? The answer is YES! I wanted to purchase some of the other vinyl quotes but don't have any vinyl or plans to get any soon. So I tried this one and it works beautifully on a card too. I simply cut out the expression and a graduation hat in white and attached to the card front. Simple but awesome:)

I am fascinated with the positives and negatives of the Silhouette cut files. There are so many possibilities for design using both of them. Here is the inside of this card where I sponged the shape using the paper I had cut out the graduation cap from:

My second card is one I made for my niece's graduation card. Her school colors are purple and gold. I used several Silhouette cutting files and added a diploma made of money rolled up tight and tied with matching baker's twine.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge.

Stamping smiles, Karen

Love them both, Karen, but the sentiment on the first one is so perfect for a graduate! Love the way you did all three of the grade caps. :-D
