Great Graduation

Speaking from first hand knowledge, graduation is right around the corner (my eldest graduates this year!). It's time to start thinking about getting a bunch of cards made up for my son's friends, as well as to sell to my customers.

I didn't want all the cards I made to be "school-color-oriented", so I dug around my scrap drawer to find some papers that were sophisticated enough for both high schoolers AND college graduates. Don't get me wrong, I make lots of graduation cards using school colors. But I didn't want ALL of mine to be that way.

I love how this turned out. First off, it was simple, and can easily be mass produced. Secondly, it's a card that can easily be adapted (by using the appropriate designer paper) for either a guy or a girl. This card is obviously geared toward a woman;).

The stamp set is from SU!, the '09 are rub-ons, and the ribbon is from SU! as well. Once again, I'm blanking on the paper. I need to get better at remembering my paper lines!

Have a great day.


p.s. don't forget to get those taxes in the mail!!!
