My Daughter and Son in law both graduated yesterday from Duke University with a Masters of Divinity. We are so proud of all the work they have done to get to this point. So excited to see what God has in store for their lives.
I went with Blues on both the cards since that is the school colors but I went a little lighter on my daughters, trying to give it more of a feminine look. I used Foil papers for the crosses on both cards.
The little cross charm was cut from the same paper as the sentiment tag I just added some brown ink to make it look more like a charm then paper. Added a gem to the center of the cross.
Since I was able to hand deliver the card I put a little extra dimension using foam tape and a trick of rolling double sided tape that Kittie shows here . It worked perfect for attaching the smaller cross to the bigger cross, I used a little wider tape than she did on hers so it gave a little more lift. I just love the embossing that is on the die I used to frame the crosses.

On my son in laws I went a little more rustic. I embossed the background with copper embossing powder.
I added a metal accent to the center of his cross too, but since I used foam tape on his also and the whole just happened to be the same size the gem went all the way through so it is flush with the blue cross. Sorry about the shine on the copper embossing, I just couldn't get a good picture.
