Graduation Cap and Gown Card

Well this post may be too late for some of you. I am just getting around to posting the cards I made for my friends and relatives who are graduating this year. 

I made center step cards with little graduation caps and gowns. I think they turned out really cute.

Red and black for a more formal card

Blue and gold for school colors

And Zebra stripes with pink accents and bling. (Had to make it girly :)

The cut files for the center step card with the graduation cap & gown will be available in my Etsy store.

Here are a few videos I made to show the different parts...

I love your craft!! I would love to make my own but when I click on "Center Step Card" to see the written instructions, they aren't there. Is there another way I can get a copy of the written instructions or a copy of the patterns by chance?
