Graduation cards

Good Saturday evening all you Maggie lovers!!
Two very special young people finished their L.I.V.E.S. courses at State University of New York at Geneseo college.  I don't remember what the letters stand for. One of the kids did an internship in graphic design.  He showed us his projects notebook and he has some awesome projects.

Both of the cards have Graduation Tilda or Edwin on them.

The papers are Webster's Pages Yacht Club.

The sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Edwin is colored with Copics.

I did a bit of trickery with Edwin.  It's really  the Tilda stamp with Edwin's head added.  Then I cut out the hat and made it fit Edwin.

The tassel is white embroidery floss.

The papers on the inside are from a  DCWV stack (don't remember which one).

The ribbon is from the stash.

The misspellings are a joke going back to the local newspaper misspelling Kaleb's name as Kabel.

He loved it and was still laughing about it when we left his reception!

Hannah hasn't really decided what she wants to do next.

This designer paper was from Webster's Pages Ladies and Gents.

I added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts  over top of the ones printed on the paper.  I like the way it turned out and really dressed up the card.

Tilda was colored with Copics.
Her tassel was made from white embroidery floss.

The inside is very plain.  The papers are from a DCWV stack (don't remember which one.)

Since we don't really know Hannah very well, her card is much simpler than Kaleb's.

She also has a nickname - Handle.  My hubby gives all the kids nicknames. Kaleb is Kabel.  Hannah is Handle. Tyler is Tylernol.  It gets to the point where the kids' friends are calling them by their nicknames.

And my hubby thinks I have too much time on my hands!?!

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoying the grad cards with me.

What wonderful cards! I love the masculine one very much. Guy cards are more of a challenge, and you did a perfect job! I love how you colored both images. The color choices for both are also spot on! Great job!
