Graduation cards using Party Pop-Up Thinlits

I bet you might have gone to some grad parties recently?  We had two on Saturday night, so I whipped up a couple easy cards.  At both parties we enjoyed congratulating the graduate and their parents and we also ran into old friends we haven’t seen for awhile.  I’m so glad we were able to go.

I wanted to make cute cards without spending a lot of time because most teenagers care more about the money inside than the card itself.  These are five minute cards!  I usually make the cards in the school colors of the graduate, hence the black and orange cards.

The confetti on the inside of this card came out of the remnants of Party Pop-Up Thinlits.

Sunday we had a fun BBQ with my parents.  Afterwards we went to the party room at their Independent Living facility.  It’s a cool room with a ping pong table, pool table, TV, couches and chairs, and most importantly card playing tables.  Dad and I played as Euchre partners against my Mom and sister, Janet.  Shockingly, Dad and I lost.  Actually my Mom is a card shark so I shouldn’t be too surprised we lost.  The kids enjoyed playing ping pong, pool, and Dominoes.

Tonight Superman and I dropped Sean off at the airport.  He probably won’t be at our house again until Thanksgiving.  I was tearing up as we drove away and was busy telling Steve I wouldn’t cry.  I can’t help it I inherited my Grandma Olson’s “weepy gene.”  We are thinking about going to Seattle in the fall to visit him.  Hopefully some day Sean will live in Iowa again or at least closer than Seattle, Washington.  Hug your kids if they still live at home!

If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demo, please let me know if you’d like the new 2016-17 annual catalog.  I’d love to be your demonstrator.

Do you have five minutes to spare…make a quick and easy card.  It will make you smile and the person you send it to will smile too!
