Taylored Expressions: A Diploma in 2016

The newest release from Taylored Expressions included a die for a diploma. I immediately realized it's the same size as the numbers in the Just a Number die cuts!

Everybody has cards that they find difficult to make. For me, it's graduation cards. Having a 20-year old and a 16-year old myself, the difficulty is that it is a serious occasion - but the recipients are still children at heart.  I liked using the diploma because it adds just enough whimsy that I think the "child" in the graduate will enjoy it.

This is a card that works well if you have graduates from a variety of schools. You could do an elegant black and white version - maybe add some gold, or you could easily do each one with their school colors. I like doing school colors - but have you noticed that many of the high schools have really ugly color schemes. Sometimes it's just easier to stick with black and white!
