When it came time to make her graduation card I built her card in my mind over time. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. It didn't take too long to make this, although certainly not a 15 minute card!
For the front of the card, I used my e-cutter to cut out the graduation cap and the 2014. These came from the My Digital Studio Embark Graduate stamp brush set. The stamp set I used is a retired Stampin Up set. There are several stamp sets in the new catalog that I would have liked to use, like the Bravo Stamp Set, but I don't have them yet ;0). But Bravo was one of the first items I ordered when the new catalog went live on Monday!
For the inside, I made a pop-up card with a silhouette of my niece running the hurdles! I found a picture on-line of her and print it out. Then I traced it onto basic black and cut it.
The "W" on the right represents her high school and the "M" on the left is for the University of Minnesota. I cut the two letters with my e-cutter (not Stampin Up letters unfortunately).
I can only imagine the possibilities she is setting out to achieve and we wish her much success as she reaches for her goals. She is one of those young ladies who is driven to succeed and will do so. She already has!
