Graduation Cards for 2011 Grads

Graduation Cards for 2010-2011 school year....

I covered Middle School, High school and College.

I am linking these cards up to one of my favorite sites:
Go check them out and link up your beauties!

OK. Now I know you are wondering why it has taken me so long to post these graduation cards that were not only completed long ago in 2011, but also have been delivered to the intended recipients, and are no longer in my posession. The answer...don't ask, I really can't tell ya. I'm just moving like a snail. The past several years have taken a toll on me, and I just seem to be moving slower and slower...

But the good news they are now. (hahaha) Don't forget to let me know what you think!

This first card and the last one were made from a design I saw on the internet. It wasn't a graduation card, it was a monotone anniversary card. It was embossed circles and pearls. Very pretty. I really liked the design, and that is what I borrowed. I liked how the last one came out a lot better, but I was unable to duplicate it. So I went rectangle.


This second xard was created for a young lady moving from middle school into high school. I know Dr. Seuss is probably more for lower school, but I really liked this poem from him and thought it was appropriate . I also like how this card turned out. Not sure what I would have done differently.


This card was made for a young man who is a big basketball player. He was a star on his high school team, and also intends on going to college and playing basketball for his college team. The design is the same one used for the get well card I posted recently. This is how I make the cards and then use them how I need them sometimes.


This is the last one I was talking about. I love how this one turned out. But it is truly "one of a kind" because I will never be able to make another one like it. :)
