Handmade Graduation Card

photo 2wToday I have a graduation card that I whipped up for our niece that just graduated from Wachusett Regional High School!  Congratulations Hillary!! I used My Digital Studio to create the front panel of the card using the feet from the Go Graduate stamp set!  The 2014 is from the Embark Graduate MDS digital set.  My favorite thing about using MDS is that I have access to stamp sets that I don’t have!!grad 1 The hats are from the Pomp and Circumstance set that was in the Spring Catalog. Here is the inside of the card. And of course the card has to have bling – especially for Hillary!  So I added this diploma and tied the silver ribbon around it! grad 3_cu   Now off to the party – My husband is chomping at the bit here!     Have a great weekend! signature line-003

LNS Challenge – Graduation Announcement

This week’s challenge on the Late Night Stamper Group is Celebrate!  Spring is a time for celebrations and I have two reasons to celebrate. Both of my kids are graduating in the next two weeks.  So I am a very proud Mother!! My son John, is graduating from Clarkson University with a BS in Mechanical Engineering on May 11th.  What a great Mother’s Day present.  My lovely daughter is graduating from the Academy of Notre Dame (High school) on Sunday May 19th.  So as you can imagine we are celebrating!! I put together a Graduation announcement/party invite using My Digital Studio.  I love this program! graduation2-001   I downloaded the Embark Graduate MDS Ensemble and used the template for a card that was included in the program.  Then of course I had to customize it to represent the two schools that my kids attend.  Clarkson’s colors are dark green and gold.  Notre Dame  is Navy and Gold.  I then added the logo for each of their schools. The feet are from the “Go Graduate” stamp set. I have to say that I am really happy with the way this card came out! So what is next for me and my family?  I will have an empty nest in the fall.  My daughter will be attending Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT to study Pre-med/Pharmacy.  My son will be starting a job with Dresser-Rand.  As he said – “this college thing pays off”!   Thanks for looking! signature line-red
