Using Accomplished (and the Card Making Stack) to Create Quick Graduation Cards

As a high school teacher, I am forever in need of graduation cards towards the end of the school year. With Authentique's new kraft and chalkboard line, Accomplished, it was super easy to create this gorgeous set of cards. When you factor in the fun new products that Authentique created for this line, like the Card Making Stack, the set came together even quicker than imagined.
I started each card by using a pre-scored card from the Card Making Stack. With eighteen pre-scored cards, I know that I can make more when I run out of these. I then cut six of the sentiments and quotes from the Enhancements Cut Apart Paper. I really loved the ones that I chose, especially since they were all geared towards graduation.
I then layered various pieces of the 12x12 patterned paper, and Foundations paper to make each card just a little bit different from one another. I loved layering the sentiments from the Enhancements sheet with various patterns.
To make each card more interesting, I also used pieces from the various double-sided die-cut papers (Components Paper Accents, Stamp Blocks, Circles & Scallops, and Titles and Phrases) and the 12x12 Details stickers.
To create more depth, I actually cut apart a cardboard box to use instead of dimensional adhesive. This way, if I mail each card, they will not get squished in the mail.
Authentique Supplies Used:
Accomplished Collection ( Card Making Stack, Details Stickers, Circles and Scallops Die Cuts, Stamp Blocks Die Cuts, Components Paper Accents, Enhancements 12x12 Cut Apart Paper; 12x12 Paper: Foundation, Recipient, Scribe, Brilliant, Outstanding)
Additional Supplies: cardboard for dimension
