Graduation Cards

Sharing a feminine and masculine graduation card made with my own homemade clipboards!
Here's the card with the mini clipboard pulled out.
To make the clipboards I simply copied a clipart clipboard to Word and then re-sized the top part to fit my need. After printing it out I used it as a pattern to make my own clipboards without dies!
The board part is simply kraft cardstock with rounded corners. 
Supplies used:
  • Dictionary pages
  • Brown ink
  • Tattered Floral Die (Tim Holtz)
  • Flower Soft
  • Crinkle Ribbon
  • Graduation Stamp Set (Hampton Art)
  • Yellow Embossing Powder
BTW - here's another cute way to use the mini clipboards -- to write a little note:

Just awesome! I love that you made your own clipboard with a die! I have been wanting the die for quite some time! Love how you made smiliar cards look so different for a girl and a boy. I make a grad card last night for one nephew and have to do another ne tonight for his brother.
