Todd's Graduation Card

Designed by Jeannie Phillips
Southside, Al A decade ago I made two really wonderful friends Lannie and Todd.... I needed a break from life and stayed with them for almost a week.... they were wonderful and will always be so special to me.... they are forever a part of my heart!!!... Todd went back to school to get yet another degree and Lannie asked me to make him a card for her.... it had to be special because they are both so special to me... I hope that they love it.... Thanks for looking... ~~Jeannie

Accent Essentials
Frame cut @ 2 1/2 inches on shadow twice.
Solid Frame cut from transparency @ 2 1/2 inches 1 time.
Locker Talk
Graduation Cap cut @ 1 1/2 inches (I think).
Opposites Attract
"Todd" cut @ 1 inch on the upright feature.
Square frame on the bottom hand-cut with cutter and I used a ticket punch on the corners.
Lots of brown waterbased dye ink.
I pop dotted the bottom frame 2 pop dots thick from the base of the card... then the frame with the transparency and graduation cap was pop dotted two pop dots thick from the bottom frame.

This is adorable! I have to do a card for my brother in law, who is graduating high school... so this has given me some ideas.

Very nice card. The color and style work well for any guy. You said you used a water-based dye ink. What is this and how is it different than chalk or pigment ink? I just started inking and really don't know the difference.
