Masculine Graduation Card

Tis the season for graduation, whether it be from preschool, high school or college.  Our neighbor's son is graduating form high school and this is the masculine card I made to honor this accomplishment.

To make this card I used a polka dotted background stamp that was recently retired from Stampin Up.  I was thinking this would be a great card to try the masking technique on too.  For now though the background is square.  The sentiment is from the very versatile "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set.

I used my Cricut to cut the graduation hat out, if you are interested in making your own it is easy to do with a paper trimmer.  Check out this tutorial.  If you are interested in seeing a more feminine graduation card I made in an earlier post click here.  I am also entering this into The Paper Players Challenge #146, come check out the details and enter yourself.

I hope this gives you some inspiration to create your own graduation card for that special grad in your life.
Happy Crafting,
