Default Can you help me find a card idea?

I need to make a card for a young man who's leaving for college across the country. His parents are having a good-bye BBQ for friends and family and I thought I should at least take a card. But I have nothing that would suit and don't often make cards for 18 year old males! I'm stuck! Anyone have any ideas? TIA!

How about something along this line? Sort of a Bon Voyage theme.

What about finding some meaningful sentiment to the occassion, and using your word processor to type it out. Then mount that onto "masculine" colored cardstock and make your own background--stars, circles, whatever. Maybe you have some patterned paper hanging around that would fit the occasion.

Good luck!!!

If you are giving a gift, how about a pocket style card with a gift card inside for Starbucks or Staples?
