Patriotic Themed Grad Card – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning. Hope your week is off to a good start!

Since so many graduations seem to fall right at the end of May around Memorial Day, it only makes sense to create a red, white and blue grad card – especially when the school colors just happen to be red, white and blue. Perfect! And that is just what Holly did for today’s graduation card. Let’s take a look:

Loving this for the grad! It’s festive and fun.

Again, a great mix of printed papers which always makes me smile!


The die for the grad cap has a tassel, but Holly cut off that tassel and replaced it with one she made from embroidery floss.  It looks FABULOUS!

Fun pearl accents, too, in red, white and blue.

Love the way the Congrats! POPS off the card on the white fishtail banner.

A grad card sure to please!
