Vera Lane Studio: The Graduate



Today I'm sharing another DT project for Vera Lane Studio.

Janet, the owner and artist at Vera Lane, is on a roll with cute, whimsical characters and this little graduate, from a set called Graduation Day, is the latest to join The Lane. It contains a girl and a boy graduate along with accessories and three sentiments.

I made an easel card:

Easel cards are one of my favourite cards because they are so simple to make, but look a little bit special. If you want a photographic step by step tutorial, look here.

The great thing about digital stamps is that they can be resized, reversed, and arranged before being printed. For my little graduate, I placed his degree scroll in one hand and his mortarboard cap in the other, as he jumps for joy.

I coloured the little graduate with alcohol markers (I'm absolutely delighted as I have bought some Copics and can't wait to add to my tiny collection). Once coloured he was fussy cut leaving a thin white border. As I planned to attach him onto a patterned paper background, I decided to mat the image onto black card first. He was attached on foam pads to the dp.

I used two of the sentiments from the set on the inside of the card. The 'Congratulations Graduate' sentiment is popped on foam pads and acts as the stopper for the easel.

Graduation Day
