Creatively made into a Graduation card!

Hi All! Today I have a fun hot foil card featuring a VW Beetle that I made into a graduation card! Recently my neighbor asked me to make two graduation cards for her kids. Both are graduating with Masters, her daughter in Education and son in Architecture. I will show you the sons card in a few days. As usual I try and personalize cards. I know Jocelyn drives a cute beetle with those fun eyelashes on it. She also loves pink. So that’s what I was working with. Now, on with the Show & Tell…

This set was the Glimmer of the Month for 1/2023. It is available for purchase and is a really fun set. Look into the Spellbinders Clubs, they are fantastic!

Adding the congratulations sentiment and a cap transformed this into a graduation card! If you look close I even added little eyelashes.

The pastel pink hot foil worked beautifully on the Shimmer paper.
