Graduation Time!

Hi Everyone, it's Cheri here today to share with you 2 cards I made. Graduation is right around the corner for 2 of my favourite people! Both my Nephew and my Cousin's Daughter (I like to think she's mine on loan to my cuz, LOL) are graduating from Grade 8! I have no clue where the time went, as I  remember like it was yesterday when they were born! I'm not getting older am I? 

I used the set from Your Next Stamp called Grad Kids. It has the 2 images as well as 2 sentiments in the set. I coloured the images with my Copic Sketch Markers, and then fussy cut them out with detail scissors. I added some ribbon and twine to each card. I thought for my nephews card He would appreciate the twine, as it's not so "girly" LOL. I added some YNS Gumdrops to finish it off.

Copics Used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair girl: E31, E33, E35, E37
Hair Boy: E43, E44, E47
Hats & Robes: N3, N5, N7, N9
Blues: B24, B26, B28
Reds: R24, R27

Just a simple inside of the card using one of the included sentiments. I stamped the sentiment with embossing ink and then sprinkled silver embossing powder on it. I used my heat tool to set the ink and powder.
