A Special Graduate...


As we all know it's difficult to find correctly proportioned graduate images and sentiments with elegant qualities. Thus... how my "iris fold" graduation cap came to be.

Simply "black and white"... This is a card that I designed and made many times for others to give to those "special" graduates in their lives.

Our family friends, Pete and Mel have a special son named Travis that will be graduating high school on June 22nd! Our family has had the honor and privilege of watching this wonderful "old soul" grow-up into a fine youngman.

Travis has so many fine qualities, such as his gentle patience with children, wonderful humor not to mention his willingness to lend a helping hand.

It's not always been easy for Travis to sit and learn from a book. However, he's excelled and absorbed "hands on" learning at the knee of his grandfather and father in the finished carpentary field. Travis is musically accomplished when it comes to playing the piano, banjo and guitar... whether with the church band or with family and friends.

We are so proud of you! We look forward to celebrating more of life's milestones with you. Much Love Always...

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...

Anne, this is just stunning! I have the worst time with graduation cards, but this one is so wonderfully elegant and...well... perfect! The iris fold for the grad cap is ingenious, and I love the way the b/w is simple and bold without being overstated. Beautiful work.

Anne, I love this card. I have already told you just how much I love this card. Although your photograph of it is wonderful it does not do it justice. In real life this card is stunning! The young man who will be receiving it will treasure it I'm sure.
