Hey Peeps! We’re starting a new Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Okay. I’m just gonna say it. This may be the coolest graduation card ever. At the least it’s the coolest one I have ever made. This card was gifted to an awesome young man who is a friend of our youngest Son and a fellow Boy Scout. We are super proud of him. He has a very bright future I’m sure : ) Well done Zachery!!!
Did I mention it’s a shaker? And did I mention that I die cut and embossed those stars with a shiny silver finish? That’s how you an tell how much I like this young man.
I wanted the Pirate P to be inside the shaker…but I didn’t want it to get turned over or stuck in a carner so it’s secured in place with fishing line.
That’s one cool dude! we really have great school colors. Easy to find and work with and photograph.

Now it’s your turn to create an Anything Goes project and link up with us to play along.
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
This is the time of year when you will be needing a lot of graduation cards. I know we do!!! Maybe because we have one kiddo left at home who is a senior next year yikes. Anyhoo….I just make up a big ol pile of them and have them ready when the party invites start rolling in. We are the Pinckney Pirates and our school colors are black red and white….so it’s really just picking patterns that work together and mixing and matching them to create many cards with a similar style. I’ve also included some awesome chippies that simply colored in black to create a fun graphic pop. I always try to incorporate the year as well…incase someone is saving them. Do high school kids save cards?? I’ve created a Snapguide tutorial….and you will be thrilled at how easy these were to create…just change out the colors for your school.
Please enjoy this Snapguide Tutorial I’ve created….
