Back to School Card Graphic Design

For our Back to School Card Graphic Design Contest, we want you to create a card that welcomes your friends back for the first day of classes!

It’s been a long and gorgeous summer, but now students everywhere are getting ready to strap their backpacks on and file into homeroom to begin a new academic year. You’re sure to see some faces that you haven’t seen since the closing bell last spring, so design a card to welcome them back to school. Use photos, frames, back to school clipart package, text and whatever else you need to perfect your final design!
