Graduation Invites

Recently my friend, Shasta asked me to make some handmade Graduation Announcements for her friend, Chrysten.

It was a bit of a challenge…I was definitely out of my comfort zone.  But I did end up making some samples for Shasta.

The photos I used of Chrysten are colored but on the final product the photos will be black and white (try to imagine them that way).

Here’s the four samples I made:

Shasta chose the first sample.

I got the pocket idea for the second sample from THIS POST on my friend, Alex’s blog (I thought it was a fabulous idea).

All of the announcements are just cardstock, ribbon and lace (and flowers…and pearls…and buttons).  I cut out the flourishes, library pocket and scalloped cards on the Accu-Cut Machine at PSB.

I did not take any ‘inside’ photos of the announcements to protect Chrysten’s privacy.

Anyone you know graduating this year?  High School?  College?
