Graduation Cards

Graduation for our gorgeous girl was a long wait.  Covid meant it was postponed for two years including two cancellations. However we got there and it was such a special day.  We are like all parents so proud of Liv and her achievements.  She has now flown the nest of home and is loving her job.  Naturally as a card maker I couldn't let the day go without a special handmade graduation card which I can now share.  I cased and adapted a card I spotted in a demonstrator email from Stampin' Up!

Proud mum and of course Dad couldn't resist a try of the hat as he was already working by the time his graduation happened and so missed out.  He even admitted he was sad now not to have been able to go all those years ago. So make sure you go to yours if you have a great achievement like this to celebrate.

The card itself has tone on tone stamping on the background paper and then a fussy cut flower from the same paper pack  is adhered to a Stylish Shapes circle die.  The fussy cutting with these gorgeous printed flowers isn't difficult and you can of course choose how far you want to go with cutting out every little piece. Adding to a white background disguises some of the not so easy to cut out parts and saves you the time.  Finishing touches include some basic pearls and a double bow of white bakers twine.  

When you join Stampin' Up! the door is open to lots of inspiration and ideas from the company and its designers as well as others who benefit from being a member.  There are lots of people to help you with technique tips and gorgeous makes of all kinds.  You can enjoy discount shopping of top quality stamps and papercraft products all coordinating to make it easy.  If you would like to find out more about joining a great community of papercrafters please do get in touch.  You can get a fab logo'd planner along with your starter kit if you join in July or August as a bonus free gift.

Congratulations to Liv, I hope she enjoyed her big day, and the photo of you both together is just lovely. I do like Dad with the cap on, better late then never to wear one lol.
