You Did It!

Today I’m sharing a graduation card using KLM Digital DesignGraduation Gnome II from the new March release. This image also comes with 2 more sentiments, “Be the change that you want to see in this world” and “And so the adventure begins”. This little gnome is glowing with pride after graduating and accepting his diploma. Congratulations to all of the new graduates out there this year!

Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock was used to create a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Recollections – Black cardstock was cut to the size of 4″ x 4-5/8″ and Recollections – Patterned paper was cut to the size of 3″ x 4.25″ using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers and my Cuttlebug. Using a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen, I inked around all of the edges of both pieces.

The image and sentiment were imported into Microsoft Word and printed out onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image and fussy cut around it and the sentiment. Both were adhered onto Recollections Black cardstock and then fussy cut again.

The card was now ready to assemble. I added U-Line double-sided pop-up tape to the backs of the sentiment, image and both rectangular pieces. All pieces were then popped up onto card to complete it.
