Congrats You Did It!


Happy Sunday!  I went to a graduation party yesterday for our neighbor's son.  We have known him since he was a baby (he calls us aunt and uncle), so I wanted to make a nice card for him.  I stole this design from Maureen's card that I saw and saved a little while ago.  Hers was a bit more girly, so I had to man this up!  I didn't have anything appropriate for a male grad, so I went to my Silhouette Cameo machine and dusted it off (literally!).  I don't think I've used it in about a year!  Shame on me, I know!  I purchased three designs (each on sale for only $.75!) because I wasn't sure which I would use.  I ended up using all of them.  His high school colors are green and gold, so I cut the numbers from yellow cardstock and adhered it to a piece of green pattern paper.  On the right, I added a panel on dimensional tape, the sentiment, and the grad silhouette.  I didn't add any sequins or enamel dots like I normally would for a girly card (darn those boys!).  This card is a little bigger too...4.5" x 6".

I decided to add the other grad silhouette on the inside with another sentiment.  Look at how detailed that silhouette is and how nicely it was cut with the Cameo.  I've got to use it more often!  On the envelope (I didn't take a picture of it) I added the same sentiment as on the inside and a grad cap silhouette.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you soon!
