Middle School Graduation Card for a Boy

Hi Folks! I've been working on a middle school graduation card for my cousin's son. Ever since the kids were little, they've enjoyed playing cards at our family camper, so I thought the In the Cards set from CASual Fridays would be perfect for his card.

The MISTI stamping tool came in so handy for making this set of cards! I was able to keep the large and small spade and the same spot every time, and then just switch out the different numbers. I have to be honest, usually I'm too lazy to get out the MISTI for stamping, but for this situation it was a life-saver.

I just put the cards in the pocket so they would be removable. You may also notice that I've invented a new suit of cards ... red spades! His school colors are red. It's definitely not the case that I got mixed up : )

Seriously, could the Tin Roof background stamp be more perfect for the backs of cards?! I think I even have some actual playing cards that look like this!

You could also stick in some money here, or potentially swap out the 10 card for $10. I could go either way on this version.
This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2016" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.
