Now, Ginny shows a way to make awesome cards for graduation. This is such a great idea, and now Ginny is ready for graduation season (and you can too!)

 "This is the time of year when you will be needing a lot of graduation cards.  I know we do!!! Maybe because we have one kiddo left at home who is a senior next year yikes.  Anyhoo….I just make up a big ol pile of them  and have them ready when the party invites start rolling in. We are the Pinckney Pirates and our school colors are black red and white….so it’s really just picking patterns that work together and mixing and matching them to create many cards with a similar style. I’ve also included some awesome chippies that simply colored in black to create a fun graphic pop.  I always try to incorporate the year as well...incase someone is saving them. Do high school kids save cards?? I’ve created a Snapguide tutorial….and you will be thrilled at how easy these were to create...just change out the colors for your school." ~Ginny
