Does this work...? I hope that the type placed on the face is not a "big no",although the opacity is 60%. Thanks for the help :)

This announcement pairs well with the graduation party invitation of the same name.

awesome Nazia! I would make the opacity a little more on 'GRAD' i.e. make it a tinge more see-through, and add a little more space above and below her name, it feels a little bit like the text lines hanging in the air. your changes are great! and i love the extra width added to the photo.

Hello, I just saw your comments on the "face" grad. Great start, but don't cover up the face. People are going to want to see her face as a rule.....can you put GRAD in another location of the design somehow? Just a thought. Love the font choices and the color!

Love this, Nazia! It's definitely the type of thing that would appeal to a specific audience (me, for example). I think Alison has a point; some parents will probably be more traditional, but if the grad has any input, this would be a very cool option! And the photo you chose is just right! Love it! :)

This looks great! I like the transparent white text. So great. One small suggestion on the typography.... I would tighten up the leading on the black type. So that there is a slightly larger space between the red and black type and less space between the two lines of black type. I would purchase this in a heartbeat!

Hi Nazia! Great design! I agree with Erin. To add to that Id also add more space above her name, dont worry about having equal white above and below the whole design. Rather add ehite space above her name. And something really just as an afterthought, i might make the photo fit in a little bit wider mask :)

I saw your comment on FB about having text over the face/photp. Personally this is a style I really like, but it may not appeal to everyone else who want their kids' faces to be prominent in the design. But I say go for it as there's bound to be people who appreciate this as a good design and wouldn't see it as a big deal that the face is obscured slightly by the text!
