Graduation Cards

Hello bloggers. I promised to share with you some graduation cards I made. I finally took pictures and loaded them to my computer, so here they are. I have 4 family members that are graduating this year 2 from high school and 2 from 8th grade. I only have three pictures because two of them are graduating from the same school and same grade, so theirs are the same.

All the cards have the same style. I will use the blue and yellow card as an example for giving measurements. Each one is a standard A2 size card, which is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. The bottom yellow mat is 4 x 51/4 inches, the next blue mat is 3 3/4 x 5 inches. The top yellow mat is 2 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches, the bottom yellow is 3 1/2 x 2/ 1/2 inches. The white piece that is stamped on is 1 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches. The pattern paper is 3 1/4 x 2 1/4 inches. The hat was cut from everyday paper dolls cricut cartridge at 1 inches, I think.
All papers except for the pattern paper are papertrey ink. The colors I used are summer sunrise, enchanted evening, spring rain, vintage cream, true black, and pure poppy. The pattern paper is a double sided paper by TPC studio, the pattern paper on the second card is the back of the pattern paper on the top card.
The stamp is a stampibilities stamp I got at Hobby Lobby, I used memento black ink to stamp it. The stamped piece and the hat are both poped up. These cards are kind of heavy and would probably require extra postage, but luckily I will be hand delivering these.

I just love how these cards turned out, I just started playing around one day and out came these cards. I hope everyone has had a great weekend.
