Pals Blog Hop: Graduation Fun with Family

Pals Blog Hop Badge 5 Tulips - Manrope 300x300

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Fun Family Occasion. We hope that you will be inspired by the creations the Pals are sharing with you! You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create this Graduation Card wth the Mini Alphabet and Alphabet A la Mode Dies by Stampin' Up! Card by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

Family Fun! So much family fun this year. We have a college graduation, several high school graduations, a wedding and so much more! I cannot wait to spend time with our family! This Friday we head to Madison, WI to witness our nephew Evan graduate from UW Madison with honors! Can’t wait!

I always customize my graduation cards! …because a store-bought card is not an option for me! I love to personalize them and with the array of colors Stampin’ Up! offers, I always seem to have exactly what I need!


Begin with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock. Score at 4 1/4.

Adhere a 5 1/4 x 4 piece of Basic White Cardstock to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used a Cricut to cut the “W” (Wisconsin Badgers) in Real Red Cardstock with a Basic Black Cardstock drop-shadow. I adhered them together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the letters using the Mini Alphabet and Alphabet a la Mode dies in Basic White and Basic Black Cardstock. Adhere them together as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Adhere the small die-cut letters as shown with snipped-to-size Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the large die-cut letters as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

  1. What a beautiful card!!! My grandson is attending UW Madison and I’ll definitely be casing this awesome card for his graduation! Thank you for sharing the card and a FREE tutorial ❤️

  2. Fantastic Grad card Stesha! Funny, my son graduated from Wooster High (many moons ago). The colors were the same. This could easily work for Wooster Grads as well. Thank you for sharing.

  3. What a fantastic graduation card, Stesha! It certainly celebrates the occasion and will be appreciated! I love the big W as the background. Thank you for joining the hop this month!
