Any Occasion Card for a Great Occasion

The college graduate typically gets quite a lot of cards (and presents if they are lucky).  I haven't heard of the mother of the college graduate getting a card though.  Is there even such a section in the greeting card aisle? There should be...

I have a friend at work whose daughter is graduating soon, and I thought it would be nice to make a card to give to her for the occasion.

 I put to use some of my alcohol ink painted paper that I've been making.  The vase is clear acetate that I punched with a vase punch.

 I love a glass vase for flowers, so I thought this would work nicely.  I used some blue alcohol ink to put "water" into the vessel.

To adhere it to the card, I used some Diamond Glaze.  I knew it would dry quickly, and it would give the appearance of liquid in the vase.

Plus, I like the stems showing through...  It's super easy, and has a great impact on a sweet card.

Pin It


  1. This is such a thoughtful thing to do. I bet your friend will treasure this. What a lovely card and an even more lovely friend.


I won't deny it, I love comments! Thanks...
