Graduation Milestone

There are so many graduation ceremonies and celebrations going on this and next month. It’s a proud moment for the graduate, the parents, grandparents and the rest of the family and friends.

I’m very proud of my great-nephew Christopher who recently graduated from Boone High School. He’s my sister’s first grandchild to graduate and also my niece’s first child. He’s taking a few gap months before he decides his future, he’ll be actually visiting some national parks with his cousin an other fellow graduate.

I made this graduation card for him in his school colors.



Card Measurements:

The finished card measures 4-1/4″ x 7-1/2″

  • Card Base 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, score and fold each side at 2-1/8” for the gatefold
  • Mortar Board 3”x 3”
  • Neck Piece 3” x 3”, cut in half diagonally
  • Inside pieces, 2 at 1-7/8” x 5-14” for the side panels and 4” x 5-14” for the center piece
  • A scrap piece 1-1/2” x 2” to attach the mortar board

Here is the video where I learned how to make it. I added and modified a few measurements for a taller card.

Enjoy a photo gallery of the graduation celebration. Unfortunately I was unable to attend but I was there in spirit!
