Graduation-it's the little things...









I made this graduation card for a nephew who will be finishing his senior year soon!  I kept the colors muted...boys like it that way LOL!  I used the Elizabeth Craft Accordian die cut with the matching flourish edges-easy, elegant and  very pretty!

I absolutely love this stamp set from Stampers Anonymous-it has so many wonderful sentiments. (you'll be seeing another one from this set this week).

I assembled the card and added the Jumping Grad with pop dots (cut with my Silhouette), the sentiment, and decorated  the backside of the card too. I left one oval blank to add a handwritten note.

Lucky for me, his school colors are black and red! Worked out perfectly!!!



Back of the card-just as pretty as the front!
