Diploma

Hey there! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design! Today we're featuring an image that's perfect for creating cards and gifts for graduation season.





I decided to make and decorate a little envelope. It's the perfect size for holding a gift card (or check/cash) for the graduate.

 
I stamped the diploma onto the envelope and then again onto a white scrap of cardstock. I fussy cut the image from the white cardstock, added some shading with a marker, tied on some embroidery floss, and then adhered it over the stamped image on the envelope. I like the idea of matching the color of the embroidery floss to the school colors of the recipient (a fun detail).

Note: I made the envelope following a mini tutorial on Amber's blog, Damask Love. So super simple! You can find the post HERE.
