Graduation Card


Unbelievably, a girl that I taught in third and fourth grades has been student teaching at my school this year!  Yes, that makes me feel old!  Anyway, she just graduated with her masters, so I made this card for her.  It was hard to get a good picture of it.  For my background I used clear embossing powder to stamp a graduation cap from My Creative Time's Follow Your Dream stamp set all over the white cardstock.


I made my focal point by using the MCT XL Label Die to cut my dark green frame and the Stitched XL Label Die to cut my white layer.  On that I stamped the diploma and "Class of 2013" with stamps from Follow Your Dream.  The graduation cap was die cut with a die from MCT's Here's Lookin' at You.


This sentiment is also from Follow Your Dream, stamped in dark green, one of her school colors.
