Her boyfriend graduated this past Saturday and now is out in the world. I asked him what he is going to do now and he said "nothing". Um, nothing?? Wrong answer! He does have a good job now, and he was promoted to manager a while ago ~ but life is to uncertain and things could change in an instant. School, school, school... That is what he needs to do. But all I can do is preach I guess.
The card is actually 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square. I used Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and white card stock. I made the little tassle from some of the thread that Mom makes her butterflies and flowers from. The stamp set is actually from Clear Dollar Stamps that I purchased a long time ago. Graduation and St. Patrick's day stamps are always hard for me to find. Anyway - I made this card to look a little like a gown and cap.
I gave it to Danielle to give to him and I get "This is not our gown colors". I told her that I would make it reflecting the school colors. For some reason her school colors are red, white and black. Their graduation gowns are blue? I don't understand that... but oh well.
I thought that I'd share it will you all in case you are in need of a grad card.
I'm off to the craft room. I'll be back tomorrow with more to share... And remember, if you are in need of anything Stampin' Up! take a peek over at my other blog Joani's Cards Made by Hand, Too. Have a great afternoon!
