Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
My niece graduated from uni. this year and I wanted something different to put on her card. So I asked the talented Janette Padley of Dragons Lair Designs if she had a digi-stamp of a dragon wearing a mortar board graduation cap so I could colour it up as a little graduating red dragon. It wasn’t long before she sent me exactly what I wanted – Thank you so much Janette.
Here’s the card I made, with everything cut out using Tattered Lace dies.
Llongyfarchiadau is Welsh for Congratulations!
Angled view to show dimension.

The papers I used are “Graduation Background Papers” by Lorraine Smith
I wanted to make a little gift to go with the card, in addition to giving her a bit of money, so out came a small assortment of my jewellery making supplies and I made a red bracelet. But I wanted something special to go with it and bought a sterling silver little Welsh dragon charm to attach to the bracelet.
Here’s what I made –
I also made another, simple, card for my parents to give my niece. Just using some of the backgrounds from the same collection and cut using a different set of Tattered Lace dies.
I left the inside back plain for my mother to write in.
