1. Cut large Thank You from white vinyl. Weed, pick centers and transfer to center of card using transfer tape.
2. Cut small thank you from white vinyl. Enter 2 spaces after spelling out the word thank you. This will give the extra design space needed for phrase. Repeat 3 more times.
3. Weed, pick centers and use transfer tape to position phrase across the top of the card. Burnish
4. Cut 2 graduation caps – the smaller one for the front of the card which is placed near the “u” and “k”. The second cap is larger and is placed on the back flap of the envelope. Weed, pick centers, use transfer tape to move. Burnish 






 

 

Tip: It only takes a light pressure on the transfer tape to adhere vinyl to paper. Too much pressure might result in tearing of the paper when removing transfer tape.


Happy crafting!
