A Graduation and a Card

Hi Everyone,

we had a big celebration on Sunday - our daughter graduated Biomedical Engineering with highest honors (summa cum laude) from college!!!!! Yeahhh! We are so excited! She always was an outstanding student and she still is. I made that card for her:

I made the graduation cap with a diamond die by Lifestyle Crafts and just cut the bottom part by hand. Made the tassel with embroidery gold thread an dadded some left over sequins from aprior project. The gold dots I  made with a stamp by  Avery Elle - Circle it and WOW embossing powder. The die cut sentiment is by Papertrey.

Here is our daughter showing off her decorated cap:

And here are both of my kids in front of the Biomedical Engineering building on Campus:

Another view of my card:

I am linking up with:
Curtain call - Totally Tassel
Friday Mashup - all about grads
The Pink Elephant - Graduation


And I have another card to share, but for the info (and the video) - YES, I made a Video!!! - you have to visit the Spotlight Projects over at STAMPlorations

Happy Stamping!

Herzlichen Glückwünsch an Tochter und Eltern, was für ein tolles Gefühl muss DAS sein!!!

Was für eine schöne Tochter hast du!!! Toll sieht sie aus.
Ich gratuliere dir zu ihr und ihr zur bestandenen Prüfung und allem was damit zusammenhägt.
Dein Sohn ist ja auch ein knuffiges Kerlchen. Dem sitzt der Schalk im Nacken oder???
Deine Karten sind mal wieder wunderbar. Ich weiß ich wiederhole mich immerzu, aber ich weiß keine passenderen Vokabeln dafür.
Liebe Grüße,

Congratulations to the daughter and the daughter congratulate success! The card is so beautiful. I love this gold tassel, and gold stamping reminiscent of the golden rain that has poured on to your lovely daughter. Great card!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Amazing cards. Love the classy black and gold graduation card. The tassel looks great. The sponging with the dry embossing looks great on the second card. Congratulations to your daughter! What an achievement! Thank you for playing along with us at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

Crazy. Awed by your card at Curtain Call in the gallery. Came to say how classy it is. Awed by the fact that you have a daughter - I hadn't registered that! I only knew about your son and figured he was quite a bit younger. Wow! How proud you must be. And congratulations to her! That's quite an achievement.

Darnell said...

How wonderful! Your card is perfection as far as graduation cards go!! (Pinning!) Thank you for sharing the fun photos of your kids! Congratulations to your daughter on all her success! (I adore the decorated cap!!)

Awesome baby card, too, Cornelia! I'm off to watch your video and "meet" your voice! Hugs, Darnell
