Oddball Boy Graduate



Graduation In the Time of Corona Virus…



It’s time for another Papercraft Business Challenge!




This Month’s theme is Father’s Day or Male. I chose to do a Male Graduation card.




Happy Monday from my house to yours! I am sure we all know a High School Senior who has missed out on a lot of Senior activities. My Nephew Morgen is one of them. Never the less we are still SUPER proud of him. He lost out on his senior year of baseball, which I think was the hardest for him to miss out on. He will be playing in college though. Go Monks!!! He had a virtual signing, a virtual graduation and no prom. Todays card is the one I made him. It features his school colors and because of this virus I though the Oddball Graduate would be perfect. Normally I like to color my image before I pick paper, but for this one I did pick the paper first. I knew I wanted yellow and green and they needed to be a bit masculine. I hope you like it!


Since most of my family is Irish the embellishments for this card were a no brainer. I tripled them and added Nuvo Drops in morning dew to them for a bit of shine.


It is hard to see in this photo, but there are Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew on the skulls. If you look close you can see a booboo in his eye that I had to use a bit of white gel pen on! Nope, I am not perfect. There is also black glaze pen on his pupils.


I love the way the RAD in Congradulations stands out, because I think Morgen is pretty RAD! After all he was the first one to make me a Great Auntie.
