Graduation card made.

I made a card for my husbands oldest grandson yesterday. He is graduating from High School this weekend!

used a combination of parts of the invitation which was sent to us, Mariposa card stock for the front background, and a package of embellishments by Life's Little Occasions (sold at JoAnn Fabrics).

It may be hard to see (I'm posting this from my camera so tiny screen), but I placed his name (I covered his last name for privacy) that I cut out that little name card that is stuck in the invitation, and  added the graduation cap, stars, and CONGRATULATIONS embellishments. 

Then the inside left:
I took the vellum sheet that says Class of 2004 from the invitation, taped it in using double sided sticky tape, then added the embellishments. 

(I covered the inside right since we had already written our messages to the graduate).

The card cost was way less than a store bought one. The embellishments were under 2 dollars, and the stuff I took from the invitation, which personalized it beautifully, were free. The card itself and card stock were just pennies!

Making beautiful cards, are so economical, and really fun, and much more thoughtful.  I think this one turned out gorgeous!
