A Pharm Grad

A friend at work has a nephew who is graduating with a Doctorate in Pharmacy and she asked if I could make a personalized card for her to give him.  "Sure" I said and off I went to the Silhouette shop hoping they would have a mortar and pestle - a traditional pharmacy image -  and luckily they did!  So I cut the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo and sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Old Paper ink to give it some depth.  I adhered the pieces to the card with foam tape which added more dimension.
 The Congratulations is from Fancy Phrases by Waltzingmouse and the PAUL was stamped with the Snap Stamp Alphabet by Karen Foster (no longer available)

Here's what I put on the inside -  the graduate is from the Silhouette Store, ' you did it' is from Enjoy the Ride set by PTI and I stamped the 'PHARM.D' with the Fresh Alphabet set by PTI.
Leslie was thrilled with this card and thought her nephew would love it! 

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Fancy Phrases, Papertrey Ink - Enjoy the Ride - Fresh Alphabet, Snap Stamps Alphabet - Karen Foster
Paper:  Rustic White, true black - PTI, Teal - Coordinations Ranger Distress
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Old Paper
Accessories:  mortar & pestle cut file from Silhouette Store, corner rounder - Zutter, foam tape.
