Graduation season is amongst us! If you don't know by now, I LOVE DCWV paper! I use the papers in 95% of the projects I use. Anyway, I have several people graduating in the upcoming weeks so I will be busy making graduation cards. In light of the season, here is a graduation card that I made for my god-daughter who is graduating from high school:
As mentioned, I love DCWV and I used the coordinating paper to Royal Garden for the gold paper. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the design. For the life of me, I never remember the names of the folders! I really wish they would put the names on the folders. Of course, I could do that myself, but I forget as I am opening up something new LOL! I also used purple Core'dinations cardstock. Finally, I used a couple pieces of small pattern paper from my stash.
I have to thank Sarah for the bows on the banner; what a great touch to finish off the card! I also tied a bow on the diploma to give a 3-D effect even though it is a flat cut. To add a little more dimension and realist effect, I added liquid pearls on the cap and banner.
This is an A2 sized card. I used the Gypsy to design it. Thank you for looking!
