Bold Graphic GRAD card

I just love bold graphics - whether on cards, home decor or fashion. My sweetie and I went to Philadelphia last year as part of our vacation (if you ever go you HAVE to see The Magic Gardens at 1020 South Street. Oh my goodness!!! We saw the iconic LOVE graphic art at the fountains downtown, and I saw a little girl wearing a T-shirt with the graphic on GMA the other day, and it hit me that I could make a few cool graduation cards pretty quickly with this graphic. Hope you can use it. It fits perfectly on the front of a 5x5" square card, and I have already posted directions for making an envelope to fit this size card, as well as a recipe for homemade envelope glue.

The svg can be downloaded for free here.

Thank you so much for this file. I am going through a big and bold, black and white phase and this card looks perfect.
I am hopefully going to need a lot of graduation files next year when my daughter (also called Laura)and her friends graduate.

Haha - Carolyn, you should see my living room right now! I am in the process of redecorating it, and big and bold, black and white describes it to a 'T'. We bought a WHITE couch at Ikea - with a washable slipcover on it, so bring on the grandchildren! I am recovering two easy chairs with WHITE slipcovers (ditto), I have a black area rug with big white rings, and some really graphic black, gray & white fabric for the throw pillows. All with some deep turquoise and kiwi green accents. Can't wait till it's done!
