Cut and score the Graduation Card SVG cut file using your favorite cutting machine. I’m partial to my Silhouette Cameo 2. I like to cut by line color so that I can tell the machine which lines to cut and score and get it done all at once. I chose to use the layer that had the word congratulations cut out of it. To do this, I used the overcut button to make the word come out cleanly. In fact, I can save the word and use it on a different project.
When it comes to layering cardstock, foil is always tricky to use. Since the cardstock is not porous, it does take longer to dry so I like to layer on these first. The shininess is a bit unforgiving, so you really only get one shot at layering so the glue doesn’t show. I like to hover my layer over the gold foil and once I’ve got it in the correct spot I’ll lay it down.
