Masculine – Unisex – 2 Cute Ink Graduation Apple digital stamp graduation card

2 Cute Ink Graduation Apple digital stamp graduation card, by Paperesse.

I sent this graduation card featuring 2 Cute Ink's Graduation Apple digital stamp to a young male cousin of mine who just graduated high school.

Admittedly, it's not as masculine as this vintage look graduation card I made back in 2014 (has my style changed or what?!), but I truly think it's gender neutral and works equally well for a guy or gal. And really, what's with the stereotyping anyway? Who's to say what's masculine or feminine? I colored the apple and mortarboard and paper pieced the apple's leaf to match the Tactile Studio Teacher digital paper used.

The sentiment was created with the free Apple Boy BTN font. Embellishments are a simple brad (with the prongs cut off) and twine.

  2. Language. Certain languages says what masculine or know, like, French. C'est la pomme, n'est-ca pas? :-) :-) :-)

    All kidding aside....this is a wonderful card. And, yes, perfect for anyone who is male, female, both or neither. It's adorable, fabulously coloured and I especially love that lil paper pieced leaf.

  3. *n'est-ce (It's always unfortunate when you make a mistake while being a smart-a$#.)

  4. You always seem to find the neatest papers to use! Love the combo you picked on this one and the paper piecing on your apple's leaf ties it all together. Nicely done toots!
