Graduation Announcements

Hello Everyone! I have been busy, busy lately. I am getting ready to start a new job so I am trying to tie up some loose ends around here. One of the things I needed to get done is make some graduation announcements for my 2nd son. We home school so he did not have a formal graduation ceremony ( his choice as we are in a homeschool co-op that has a graduation ceremony). I wanted friends and family to know that he did graduate and did an awesome job on his college SATs! He hasn't quite decided what he wants to do but I think he is leaning towards joining the military. Anyway, here is what I came up with:

This idea is not origional. Robin at Robin's Creative Cottage made some similar ones for her daughter. You can view them HERE.

I made this similar to a post card and will put his graduation info on the back. I made this 4.25 X 5.5.

Here is what I used:
A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge ~ cap ( I hid some of the cuts and trimmed off the tassel )
Pooh Font Cricut Cartridge ~ 2011 shadow and font welded in my Gypsy
D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder
Ribbon I had in my stash
White Gelly Roll Pen
DMC Floss for the tassel

Since it was for my son I didn't want anything to elaborate because that is just not his style.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Crafting!
