Happy Graduate

It has been a while since my last post!! I have been busy finishing up my things in my old position and changed jobs. I am just about 1 week into my new position. It is taking quite a bit of my time right now, but I am still getting a little time to make my cards. This card I made for my nephew who is graduating from my college Alma Mater, West Virginia University. My husband and I are traveling from Ohio to West Virginia this weekend to attend his graduation. He is a nice young man and is graduating with a degree in Forensic Science. He is going to be a CSI or whatever police forces call their scientists that assess crime scenes. We wish him well and hope that his future will be blessed with only the best things in life!!

In any case, I made him a Gradution card. I used Graduate Edwin. I hope that he likes his card.







Here is a closer picture, so you can see the coloring.


I used Stampin' Up colored card stock, ink, buttons, and stamps, nestibilities and Cuttlebug folder and die. The brads are just from my stash. Following are the copic markers that I used:

Cap and Gown: B99, B97, B95

Tie and Shoes: Y15, Y13, Y11

Shirt Collar and Diploma: C1, C2, C3

Shoe Laces and Soles: E27, E25

Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20

Hair: Y11, Y21, E97, E99
