KIDS . . . really DO graduate!

Before I knew it, my sons were graduating . . . 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011 . . . and even college graduation in 2010!  There are more coming up, hopefully, and I love every moment of the celebrations.

I also work full time in a college, so I get to see 'my kids' there graduate on a regular basis.  Each year, I make up grad cards in school colors.  The Center-Step technique seemed just right for this year's card:

The scoring and cutting were done at 1" width increments.  The paper strips were cut in 3/4" widths.  And a little faux stitching framed up the focal point.

I ended up needing a few more cards real quick, so put this one together using my scraps:
