TWO of my BFF's sons have graduated high school this year. I've known them since before they were born and I think I'm as proud as their parents to see how they've grown into amazing young men. I was lucky enough to attend Alex's graduation on Thursday but Andy's was in Michigan and his party is today. Bummer I'm missing it and of course, his card is late. (Big surprise, eh Beck?)Don't look, 'cause Andy's card may just be pretty darn similar (or at least look surprised when it finally comes in the mail. LOL xx)
Don't faint, Sandy E. It's a Cricut card and it's not even Monday. Shaped front, of course. The cuts are welded in DS from Happy Graduation and Varsity Letter to a rounded rectangle from George. Cool that Dublin High colors are red, white and blue so I could use some 3D star stickers I got at M's.
The diploma is embossed in the center with a script folder and I used a stylis on the ends that seems invisible in the pix. At least you can see the dimension. I almost didn't get pix at all, since I finished this about 10 minutes before we were supposed to leave and I wasn't dressed yet. Well worth the effort, though. Alex is one of my biggest fans as far as card making goes.
I'm also entering this in the SJ Crafts Shop Monthly Challenge #5 All About the Boy and the something extra I've used from my stash are the dimensional star stickers (at least 2 years old), The Card a Day June Red White and Blue Challenge, and the Cooking with Cricut End of School Year/Graduation Challenge.
