It was a beautiful day outside but I wanted to spend some time in my craft room creating. With graduation growing near I decided on creating an SVG file for a little guy to use on a card and then it can be used for a scrapbook page! Of course 5 minutes into my craft time my dog Rocko came down and sat staring at me so I would go upstairs and see if he needed to go out…but he just wanted a treat. How could I resist those beautiful eyes!
Graduation Card free SVG File & Tutorial
Start out by cutting out all the pieces in the file. You’ll need a cutting machine such as a Silhouette or Cricut. I have the Silhouette Cameo 2 and love it! I would highly recommend it, the possibilities of what you can make are endless!
Glue the pieces together as shown in the photo. It’s always good to do a dry run first to see where to glue, and then glue it together.
After trying many types of glue I recommend Art Institute Glitter Designer glue, it dries clear and has a little give, a lot of glues I’ve tried once you lay it down you can’t move it…this is a fast drying glue but you can move it around right after you place it and I rarely get my pieces perfect the first time LOL. I use it with the Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Metal Tip for a more precision placement. Be sure you don’t accidentally grab your sewing pin and stop up the glue with it….I can say from experience that the pin rusts and turns the glue rust and black colored LOL.
Last I add some highlight lines with a white Uni-ball Signo Angelic UM-120AC Gel Ink Pen 0.7 mm and he’s ready for your card!

I started with a white card blank 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
I cut the star paper 5-1/4″ x 4″ and adhered it to the front of the card blank
I cut the purple paper 3″ x 3-1/2″ and inked the edges with ColorBox Fluid Chalk Cat’s Eye paint. Adhere this to the front of the card as shown and glue on your little graduation guy and his streamers!
