Elegant & Detailed graduation card

I was commissioned a graduation card for a Medicine School male graduate, and I decided to share it with you. I’ve always thought this kind of occasions merit elegant and timeless designs that the graduate can save as a beautiful memento.

Since this is for a male recipient I decided to use opaque silver and gray for a monochromatic combination. I used this great sentiment which is a perfect fit for the occasion and heat embossed it in silver.

The stunning die cuts add so much to the design, especially the intricate pierced elements added diagonally on the background. I decided to finish the card with grosgrain ribbon made into a simple loop and also with a few rhinestones.

Hope this gives you ideas for future graduation cards you may need to make! Male cards are not always easy to make but this fits the bill nicely without sparing on the elegant feel we cardmakers enjoy to see in our projects.

Before I go let me remind you of this month’s challenge at House of Cards: Metallics. I will be adding this card as DT inspiration and I hope you can add your design too! Thanks for stopping by today!
