I got an order for a card for a young woman graduating the Danish equivalent of high school earlier this summer. Since the new graduates wear a cap in red, white and black those are the colours I chose for the card.
Since it is also a tradition to give roses to graduates, I decided to use the amazing Gardenia Blooms die from Neat & Tangled. While the flowers might not be roses I think they look enough like roses to work in this setting. I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn Violet’s ABC which had the perfect height to fit in the space on the diecut piece.
As a way of personalizing the card, I added the date of graduation and the first letter of the young woman’s name to a tiny tag. It is a very subtle way to make the card match the occasion perfectly.
