My baby is graduating from Elementary School!! How is that possible??!! This is the card I made him last night. I am using the sketch from my ever challenging MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE!! The, oh so adorable image, is from Whipper Snapper Designs and is called "CHICK WITH BRAINS" I just love it!! Its hard to see in the photograph but I added Diamond Glaze to his glasses and the little embellishments across the top and bottom of the card. The top spells out PAT - short for Patrick and the bottom of course is the year.
When Patty opens his card he is going to get a surprise. There is a bookmark inside for him to use all summer and remind him of his graduation and to focus on the goals ahead. Thankfully all 3 boys are avid readers; so I know this bookmark will get lots of use this summer.
This is the inside without the bookmark. I stamped the image again inside and added the sentiment - also from Whipper Snapper Designs.
Finally here is a close up shot of the bookmark. The sentiment is actually on vellum though it's difficult to see that here. I made the tassel with embroidery floss and realized while making it that my finger dexterity is getting terrible!!! Age is not my friend. Well, it is my hope you enjoyed looking at this card. I plan on making another one today for my best friends son who is heading from Junior to Senior High!! I almost FORGOT!! ***HORROR*** And finally, I am going to make one for my God Daughter who is heading from Kindergarten to Grade 1!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
