The Graduate



Here is a fun and super easy Graduation card I did for my boss.  He just finished up his MBA, so I thought I would whip him up a card. I had some trouble coming up with a masculine card, so I turned to YouTube.  I am pretty sure it was  the Pink Stamper that I saw this card on. I tweak it a bit, well we did, Kel was in the scrapcave with me again, so we had a few laughs and made this.  The graduation cap is from the Cricut Cartridge, Locker Talk, as is the word Grad inside the card.  Divine swirls folder was used on a gray metallic paper.  We inked the inside of the folder with a light blue ink, ran it through the cuttlebug.  I had this beautiful, ribbon, almost like twine that we used.  Kel came up with the great idea of making the tassle look real, by cutting them with my Tim Holtz scissors, they really do work well.  I am giving this to my boss tomorrow.  I will let  you know his reaction.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
