It may not really be a masterpiece but I worked on it all day…and started it the night before! Now I shouldn’t admit to my customers that it took me so long to make one card, but since this is for my son’s college graduation it had to be special. I was thinking of making a hanging tag with “UT” on it from the ribbon, but just as I got it punched out I got the brilliant idea (I thought!) to put the UT in the center of the “graduate medallion”, rather than the G. That seemed to do it for me as far as design, so then I got the idea to emboss the UT to make it stand out. First I tried clear on Really Rust letters. OK, but not great. Then I tried the Copper Embossing Powder and felt like it was a pretty close match to the color I wanted. The striped paper on the bottom of the card is from a scrapbooking pack I bought at the UT bookstore on a previous trip. The stamp set is “Great Grads”. If you don’t already own this set you might want to get it so you can make a bunch of graduation cards before school is out!
And here is the inside of the card. The quote is from the stamp set “Live Your Dream” from the Occasions Mini, page 9. I bought that stamp set just to get this quote for this card. The star is a stamp from “In the Stars” also from the Occasions Mini, page 5.
