Class of 2018.....

Hello everyone: Well Graduations will be taking place all over the Country in the next weeks so my teammates and I, over at the SHOPPING OUR STASH CHALLENGE have a great challenge for all of you who will soon need these types of cards to give to friends and family whose kids are graduating this year.   
Here's the card I created for the son of my youngest daughter's friend from Church, who's celebrating this amazing accomplishment soon.

The request was to create a card for a young man, which is always really challenging, masculine cards always are but this one more so because this young man is 18 years old.
So I kept it simple, used the Hobart, Indiana High School colors which are purple and bright yellow and just die cut a hat, diploma and the words "Class of" and hand wrote the year on the punched out piece, added a couple of purple Rhine Stones and that was it.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


Also, very simple with the sentiment from the retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned" and just a bit of bling with the fireworks from the Pyrotechnics set from 
The Ton.
So I hope you get inspired to play along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, please visit the blog to check out what my awesome teammates have there for you.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Unless I get a sudden surprise in the mail I believe I don't have any graduations this year. Grad cards are always hard for me, but you have made the ideal card for a young man. Keep it simple and use the school colors -- awesome, Maria!

I agree about young man cards being the hardest to produce! But you have done a perfect job! School colors plus a little grad cap... done!
