This time of year is chock full of festivities and reasons to celebrate. I have to confess that Father's Day planning has taken center stage and my brother's graduation, also June 15th, fell a little down the list. Maybe the best part of graduation gift giving is that it's both appropriate and appreciated to give the gift of cash, but a little heartfelt card is required too. Not feeling like I could make yet another trip to the overwhelmingly long card aisles at our drugstore, I whipped up a little custom DIY graduation card that as an artist himself, I know my bro will love.

With a medium fine ink pen, I wrote Congratulations and added a couple of custom baubles in his school colors - a mortar board and a rolled and bowed diploma. Use my version here as inspiration or better choose your own little way to celebrate your favorite grad. And, hey, don't forget the cash!
