Congrats to a Special Graduate
Graduating from high school is an important milestone in a young person's life. Graduating from high school with Honours is wonderful. And an Honour student who also excels at music... well now THAT is one very special young woman!
When I was asked to make a graduation card for this girl, I needed to ask a few questions. And when I found out how talented and smart she is, I was a little worried that I might not come up with something special enough!
I decided to try making a pop-up card. This is a 6"x6" card when closed, opening to a full 12" inside. After making the gown for the left panel, it seemed to me that the neckline needed a little something. A pearl necklace was the perfect touch for a young woman's graduation.
This is probably the most difficult card I have ever made. For sure it ranks at the top for being time-consuming. But I am more than thrilled with the outcome. Will I make another? Hmmm, possibly... but only for someone very special.
Here's a shot of the card open flat.
I hope Hannah enjoys receiving the card as much as I enjoyed making it for her. She deserves the best.
