Graduation Card

I made this card for a friend of mine who will graduate from a Biotechnology Forensics program next week (BTF for short). I'm so proud of her. She worked for years as an electrician, but injury disabled her with respect to her profession so she decided to go back to school.


The "Congrats" with hat is a word art image from Tear Drop.  I used Pooh Font for BTF, but stretched the letters in Design Studio.  The corners were done with Jasmine.  I used Cuttlebug folders to emboss the letters for BTF and the corners.  If I made this card again, I would have chosen embossing folders that complemented each other a bit better than the ones I chose here.  I'm not happy with that aspect of the card.  I also added a brad and some threads for the tassel, and some gems on the corners.

This week at Cricut Cardz Challenge we were asked to use brads or eyelets on our creations.  Dads and Grads is the theme at The Cuttlebug Spot.  I'll post this card at both of those challenges.
