Diploma Style Graduation...

I wanted to share with you the graduation card that I made for my cousin. This was for his high school graduation. Most of the paper used was right from his invitation....when I saw it I immediately knew I would use it to create his card! Plus his school colors (red, black, and silver) were so much fun to work with!!! I had to use the diploma style card again, which I used before HERE. I love shaped cards!
Had to create a stand on the back so that the card could be displayed:
I really wanted to personalize this card as much as possible, so that is the reason for the charms. Of course you need a graduation cap for a graduation card....but the other charm is of a guitar....why a guitar you ask??? My cousin plays guitar in a band so I thought this would be a perfect, and suit his style! (Click any picture to enlarge for a better view.)

Papers: DCWV cardstock, CM metallic,
Tools: Scor-Pal, scissor
Embellishments: flowers (primas) and others from my stash, charm from HL, brad, and metallic floss.

Tomorrow is my 1st day of my summer school session classes! Eeekk! I am nervous as I have 3 classes to complete in 6 weeks! Hopefully they go smoothly! I'm not used to going to class all day...4 days out of the week! LOL! Hope I still get crafty time in the next 6 weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!
