One of our pals graduated 2 weeks ago…. finally after 4 years of hardwork, he graduated from Pharmacy School…. everyone is proud of him. Of course we went for his graduation… and I am sure he knew he would be getting a nice card from us 🙂 So here is what I created for him…wishing him on his graduation.
A simple card, with schools colors (after going through the school website, these are the colors I found…so I assumed these were school colors :D) and a big graduation cap with some pretty tassels. The cap is popped up using 3-dimesional glue. I made this card dual purpose with a pocket on the inside to hold a gift card.
The pocket was a quick creation — cut the cardstock to size I liked…started with approx 4″ x 3″ piece and cut it down till the size I liked. I used a 1″ circle punch to make an opening to pull the gift card out, put sticky tape on 3 sides and stuck it down. The cute little message added perfectly to this card (since the front had huge cap and tassels) which I decided to pop up. Popping the cap and message inside did make the card a little bulky. But since I was going to hand it personally I thought it would be okay. If I had to mail a similar card, I would not pop the message.
I absolutely enjoyed making this card for our grad….. I wish him tonnes of success while he works on his American Dream =)
Until next time,
