Graduation Day, 2014
Our cousin's grand-daughter is graduating soon from Ayala HS in So Cal. This is the card, and gift card holder I made for her. The graduate is a digitally painted graphic designed by Sassy Studio Designs and cut with Spellbinders S5-59 Gold Labels 4. The Sentiment Circle follows a Photoshop tutorial by Jen White in the Feb Premier at Scrappers Guide and includes another circular sentiment with a mortar board on it designed by Tracy Wray. The gift card holder follows a tutorial written in 2008 by PatStamps.
The sentiment in the gift card holder is the Ari Pencovici quotation: "Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference." And the sentiment inside the card includes the Thoreau quotation, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
