Hand written grad card

As a graphic designer it’s so easy for me to just hop on the computer open one of my trusty adobe programs and start designer and then hit print and walla done! But today is special my niece graduates from 8th grade and is heading to high school. I wanted to do something different for her, put more effort in give it a more personal touch…so I broke out my sketch pad and pencils and this is what I ended up with:

I trimmed it down and dry mounted it on foam board, found (from a ridiculous selection I have stashed) a great paper and mounted it in the center folded, and fastened with a button and some twine. I love the finished result! Hope it expresses to my niece how proud I am of her.
