ConGRADulations Austin!

Mornin' hens!  Here's a little card I made for my good friend Jen's son Austin. He just graduated high school.  This image is from an older Cornish Heritage Farms set from Kim Hughes called U R A Hoot. Sadly, this company is no longer in business, but Kim does have her own company now called Paper Smooches.  I love her work.  CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!  Ok, so I started with embossing the front of my card.  However, I did not want to emboss the area where the image would go.  So I made six A2 size frames from card stock with the centers cut out.  Then I taped them together and placed them on top of the embossing folder when I ran it through my Cuttlebug.  Yoila!  The center is not embossed. Yay! Ok, then I made the brown frame using my Nestabilities and popped both it and the image up using SU dimensionals.  To finish, I tied on some Baker's Twine and then added a tiny '13 to his mortarboard.
Have a great day!
