Graduation cards from card kits that feature an embossed greeting, decorative paper and a gold metallic die cut

I made another three graduation cards using the card kits from my last cardmaking class in March.  I love how they worked out!!  The first one has a colour printed image of a great decorative paper I made a while back with coloured acrylic medium.  Love the vibrancy of this image!!  The other two are scrapbooking papers that I really liked.  The white mats are made from white cardstock which I cut with a rectangle Nestabitities from Spellbinders.  I stamped and gold embossed the greeting on the bottom portion of the mat.  I mounted the paper behind the opening and then adhered these large layers onto coordinating card fronts.  The gold metallic botanical die cuts were cut with a set of Thinlits from Tim Holtz and adhered with white glue applied with a fine tip applicator.
