Keep It Simple Saturday

One of the perks of owning your own store is having an abundance of supplies to help a family member put together some cards. My niece Desi is graduating from Pima Medical at the end of this month and she came in today looking for some help making invites to her graduation party. Easy peasy...
She brought her two helpers with her and we put them to work asap. When working with kiddos the easier the card layout the better to put together an assembly line approach. Sierra inked the edges of the card. Benji used punches to cut a black circle and a gold scallop circle. Desi used a border punch on basic blue paper which also served as the base card.
We picked a beige paper with gold highlights that say congratulations. The paper had all the bling and pop to make the card look great. Once all the pieces are cut we worked fast assembling all the pieces. Used Paper Company Graduation Cap and Diploma stickers to top off the cards perfectly.

Everybody pitched in and we were done in less than an hour! Pima Medical's school colors are blue and gold so everything worked out great. Desi is going to print out a map and information on the party and will mat on the same blue paper on the inside of the card. This was a super easy project that was only made better by some family time. Thanks for coming in Desi, Benji and Sierra!!
