Happy Wednesday, peeps! We had five local students from our church graduate from high school and college this year, so I set about to make some simple graduation cards!! I tried to customize them to their school colors, but kept most of the designs similar! The first one was maroon and white...in this case, the new Merry Merlot and Whisper White! I used the Large Numbers die, a tiny little graduation cap from a 2015 SU graduation set, and a sentiment from the new Itty Bitty Greetings, embossed in white:
The inside sentiment, used on all the cards, was from two sets: the "congrats" is from the retired Suite Sentiments, the "Let Your Light Shine" is from Close to My Heart:
I had two from my very own alma mater, Avon Grove HS, and our school colors are maroon and gold! I used some retired Hello Honey cardstock and DSP and the same elements for their cards:
And one had gold and navy as his school colors, so he got the striped Hello Honey paper and Night of Navy numbers:
And since this is for a young man, I am entering it in Cards in Envy's "Let's Hear it for the Boys" challenge!
Finally, I did a total one-eighty with this fun card for a college grad. I found some fun papers in a American Crafts' Little by Little 6x6 pad, and so I could use the whole width of the DSP, I made hers into a 6" x 3 3/4" card and added a few more elements
The same CTMH set (Inspired Words Day-to-Day) has several little Christian messages, so I added a few here and there, as well as an embossed "celebrate"! Easy and FUN!! I love those little pictures!!
