As many of you already know. I have a daughter and a son, between the two of them, they have blessed me with 5 wonderful grandsons! And I love all those rascals to pieces ... all FIVE of them!
This year, my oldest Grandson, Andrew, is graduating from High School ... Hurray for the Class of 2010! Andrew has asked that I make his graduation announcements for him. I've been pondering how to do this for a couple of months now ... but I can not wait much longer ... this announcements need to be mailed ASAP!
Here is my first draft ... I'd love to get some input ... all comments are welcome. But please send your comments as quickly as possible ... I am on a deadline, so time is of the essence.
This is a very rough draft. On the face of the announcement, I plan to make the cap a little larger and do a better tassel, and diploma a little smaller, maybe ink it a bit so it shows up more too. (his school colors are black and orange)

On the inside of the card is his graduation picture with an overlay in vellum with the actual announcement information. On the top of the vellum is a black strip ... in part for color contrast and to give it a finished look, and in part to hide the adhesive underneath. At the bottom of the announcement verbage is Andrew's calling card with a picture of his school's mascot (a tiger) as a watermark behind it.
BTW ... the vellum lifts up to reveal the graduation picture.

Don't forget, this is just a rough draft of the card ... so please leave a comment to share your thoughts with me, I'd really love to know your thoughts on this! As always … thank you for stopping by to visit me here at my Little Creation Corner.
