DIY Graduation Card Ideas
The Classic Card
Bavo to your grad! With our classic Bravo Grad Clear Stamp Set, you can customize a card for anyone! This set features hats, gowns, diplomas, and more. Use traditional black ink or choose an ink that matches the grad school colors. Here are some stylistic ideas to try on your next card!
- Layer your paper
- Create a pattern
- Use Embellishments
- Create a gradient with ink
Tip: Create an ink gradient by stamping with multiple colors. Choosing a silhouette stamp will work best. Simply choose two or three ink colors and ink the top of the stamp with one color and then blend the other ink colors onto the stamp. Using a clean paintbrush to help blend is also recommened, but not required.
