One of the things I like about this season are the graduation parties. For some reason, it seems like a silent contest among the adults as to how many graduation party invitations have been received. It's also a good time to see relatives that you haven't seen for a long time. I guess you can agree with me that it's more fun to be with relatives during graduation parties than funerals. The down side? The more invites you get, the more likely you are to spend money.
But to me, one of the good things I like about being invited to graduation parties is making the graduation gift cards. Every time I make one, I make sure to follow the graduate's school or class colors.
Last weekend, we went to a relative's graduation party. In other words, I was able to make my first graduation card this year:
cardstock/dp - Recollections, Georgia Pacific, ColorBok
image/sentiment - Close to My Heart, Stampers Anonymous
ink - Stampin' Up, Tsukineko
tools: Spellbinders, Martha Stewart edge punch, Martha Stewart punch around the page
adhesive: Scotch, mounting tape
I still have several graduation cards to make... 'til next blog!
