Graduation

Hi Everyone, it's drizzling again and quite another Autumn day, although there is a sun break every so often that reminds us, there is sun behind those heavy dark grey clouds. We've been having too many of them, after being spoiled in Lockdown with great weather I miss it. I hope whatever your weather it is keeping you happy.

I was thrilled to hear our GNephew has graduated with a 2-1 and starts his Teaching in September. Of course I had to make a card and this is it.

I decided to use vinyl to add the design, for a change, after having freebie digital cut files to use which were perfect. Quite a simple card, I added paper to the card that has a silvered design then applied the design onto the paper, after having my Cameo to cut it out, the yellow "tassell" has been added twice to raise it a little. You just about see the sheen of the vinyl in the photo.

black vinyl - Greenstik
yellow vinyl - MDP
paper - a few years old! Papermania


this image can actually be used as a cut file or as a printed file, 
I decided to use it in it's printable form on the insert.

A fabulous card for your Great Nephew Faith, congratulations to him - did he have a graduation ceremony, such a shame for those that didn't.

This is such a great graduation card for your G-Nephew! I love the diamonds in the background design and the vinyl just draws the eye in immediately! NJ on this one!

Congratulations to your nephew, Faith. What a lovely card you made for him! Let's hope that I will graduate too! I am still very busy until the end of the month. Kisses, my dear friend.

What a lovely graduation card Faith! The vinyl is an inspired touch and I like the subtle silver patterned paper too. Your printer must be state--of-the-art! So pleased for your GNephew and he'll be delighted to have his achievement celebrated with a personalised card. Our weather forecast hasn't been great but it's been wrong today as we've had lots of lovely sunshine - had to get the shorts back out! Vicky x

Teachers work harder than any other professions, I'm convinced, and you must be proud of your GNephew for his accomplishments, Faith. Love the mortarboard on the front and great sentiment inside, too!
