Graduation

While home in Michigan we celebrated my nieces Graduation from High School, their colors are red and white at her school, so I new where to start but I was having a rough time trying to figure out what to do.  Was going to put the word GRAD instead of the year but went with the year instead, maybe I will do GRAD when she graduates from Michigan State University :)  I stamped the flags then cut them out to make the banner, used a little twine to hang it with and tied knots on the ends, cut a border with my punch to give it a little something more than just a straight line, but it still needed a little something so I added the stickers to look like confetti.


Hero Arts -- Friendly Flag stamps
Taylored Expressions -- Whimsy#s die
Raspberry Road designs -- Love lives here paper
Martha Stewart -- Border punch
David Tutera -- sentiment
Stampendous -- Geo shape stickers

Some of you have mentioned in the comments about making cards while I was doing VBS, I didn't have time or the energy to do it while I was doing VBS, all that I posted while gone and since have all been cards I had done before I left, I have at least one more that I had done before I left, I did have to start back to it right after VBS though because I had my sister and a few from church to do.  As soon as my sister gets her card I will share it, it was my first time trying this type card, but I can't say more because she comes to my blog :)

Oh I haven't forgot about making cards for those of you that are so sweet to come and comment either, things have been a little crazy and it has taken me awhile but I have what I wanted done, now it will be just putting the card together and I will be sharing that one soon too :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today,

Connie

What a cute idea for a grad card, Connie! I love anything with flags, and the 2016 with her school colors makes it more personal for her. Your confetti stickers definitely add to the festivity. They really look like little rhinestones. Good luck catching up after VBS. Summer is always a busy time.
