Grad

Sharing a graduation card today, that was sent to my great nephew who graduated from High School this past weekend.  His school colors are Blue and Silver.


Cut the balloons from silver metallic paper, cut the letters and numbers from two different die sets my hubby had, sorry no name, he doesn't have his dies organized :( I believe it is from Die Versions though.  Washi tape and Silver pen to add a little more celebrating to the background.

Taylored Expressions - Balloons Die
Alphabet and number dies - possibly Die versions?
Spellbinders - A2 matting basics A dies
Tim Holtz - Rose set washi tape (silver)
Silver pen

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and say Hi,

Connie

I only needed one graduation card this year, and I didn't actually make it "grad themed!" Love how you used the colors of your nephews school to create this awesome card!

Honestly, grad cards are the hardest of all for me. Last year I bought one -- first card I've bought in years. The letters and numbers really come in handy and it's certainly good when you know the school colors. You aced this, Connie!

Oh how creative Connie ... I love it!!! I need a grad card for Saturday but with being sick I just don't have it in me to create one ... although, I might be able to use your inspiration and pull one together! THANKS
