taylored expressions - graduation 2023 release!


Hey, everyone! It's time for the Graduation release at Taylored Expressions! I have a set of graduation cards to share today that feature the new Foil It - Grad 2023 panels paired with the previously released Create-in-Quads Hooray Layering Stencil set.

The products for the Graduation release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!


My nephew is graduating this year and we have already gotten a number of graduation announcements in the mail. The Create-in Quads Hooray Layering Stencil set is perfect to create a number of grad cards at one time so I will be ready to congratulate everyone! I went with a blue and silver color palette to go with my nephew's school colors, but I also think blue is a great color to use in general for graduation cards. 

I foiled the Foil It - Grad 2023 panels with the Silver Star Deco Foil using my Minc machine and then layered the panels behind the stencils to add the color and pattern to them. I blended the layers with Oyster, Gumball (shaded with Blueberry), and Blueberry (Shaded with Blue Corn) inks.


I added grad caps to the panels with that I created with the Grad Cap and Little Bits - Grad Cap dies. I cut out the main part of the caps with Blueberry ink and shaded them with Blue Corn ink. The tassels are cut out of silver glitter cardstock. For a finishing touch on the cards and to add extra sparkle, I cut out stars from silver glitter paper using the Little Bits - Stars and scattered a few on each of the cards.
