Begin with 2 sheets 6 x 12 " of black cardstock. Score at 6 " Add 5 7/8" squared red cardstock and top with 5 3/4" patterned paper. Ink all edges. Double sided tape makes this quick and easy.
Add contrasting pattern band 2 x 5 3/4 " at the bottom with red border to separate the patterns.
Layer on banner shapes choosing papers with a smaller pattern for contrast. This is a great time to add brads before the banner shapes are attached.
Adhere a background for the chippies. Layer school colors behind white cardstock. Don't forget to ink the edges. I've also included a graduation year.
Finish the chipboard in flat black for a graphic pop. Additional chipboard was finished with silvery embossing powder which compliments the brads. Finish with small black bows.
Smaller A2 sized cards begin as you did the larger cards with the finished size being 5 1/2 " x 4 1/4 " when folded. Remember to ink well and use double sided adhesive tape.
Add second pattern layer with a red border.
As with the first set....create a background for the chipboard by layering school colors with white cardstock. For the card on the left I added a tag before adhering to card base.
Finish these cards with additional chipboard pieces and the graduating year..this time cut with the Cricut.
