And now, here's Amy to tell us all about her project...
While browsing Pinterest recently, I ran across a cute graduation gift idea from the magazine Good Housekeeping: a box filled with dollar bills rolled up and tied like diplomas. I couldn’t wait to incorporate that idea into a card.
The graduation cap is die-cut with the Grad Cap die. Do you see the embossed edge around the mortarboard? I love that!
As a background for the cap and diploma, I stamped the Graphic Greetings Graduate sentiment stamp in VersaMark onto Salt Water Taffy card stock and heat embossed in white. I layered the focal point piece onto some distressed vellum, and then onto a yellow polka dot pattern paper panel.
For embellishments, I added two different types of wood veneer stars, along with a button tied off with some linen thread.
What’s your favorite graduation gift to give? Do you give money or prefer to give a purchased gift? Either way, you can create a card to help your graduate really celebrate!
