Proud Of You Grad (Graduation card)


My niece is graduating from Grand Valley College next month (which I just cannot believe) it seems like yesterday that I was holding her in my arms and kissing her little face, it just isn't possible...
At any rate she is a sweetie and I wanted to create a special card for her in her school colors. The images are stamped, embossed, colored with SU water Color pencils and then crystal glaze is added for a 3-D effect. The card front was cut using my Cricut so the little windows would show off the inchies.

Stamp is Studio G, paper is SU, Celebrate stamp is also SU.

Your Niece will love this special creation! Time does fly by! Sometimes I wish we could just freeze time to enjoy the tender moments of our kid's and loved one's youth... but they grow up and move on.... and there are more wonderful moments ahead! Your card is a wonderful testiment to your special relationship with your niece!
