Graduation Cards

There always seem to be an abundance of girl-theme handmade cards and gifts for inspiration. It’s hard to find the perfect idea for a guy. This year, two of my good guy friends are graduating so I lifted a graduation card design from our newest issue (on newsstands now). Instead of pink and frilly, I went with neutral colors with splashes of blue.

Note: For step-by-step instructions, see pages 94-95 of our June issue.

Here are a few card-making tips:
• Use patterned papers from a pack for hassle-free matching.
• You can still use girly papers for boy cards and pages. Try cutting a large floral patterned paper into strips, making the blooms unrecognizable and creating an interesting pattern.
• Go an nontraditional route for graduation cards. Instead of relying on school colors, think about what colors compliment your recipient’s personality and style.
