Grad Card

 I made this graduation card using parts of the invitation I received from my nephews graduation. I used the insert for the front seniors page. I cut the year in a strip and used it on the front. I embossed some silver paper for the background and used his school colors for the card.
 I cut out the grad and cap with my silhouette.
 I used a stamp a bought at Hobby Lobby for the inside.
I cut the mascot out and put it on the back of the envelope. I used his name plate on the front of the envelope.

I did not have time to post this card after I made it so I thought I would wait to graduation time came around again. I hope it gave you some inspiration. My nephew loved that it was so personal.
