Grad Cap

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Anne here with a card perfect for the newly graduating person in your life.  I used the Cheapo Dies exclusive die called Grad Cap and the scalloped/stitched circles are the Scallop Stitch Circles in the unbranded section.

Using the Scallop Stitch Circle set, I die cut a piece of patterned paper and a piece of blue cardstock.  I heat embossed the sentiment (which is from a rubber stamp set called Graduation Party Time) with Bracing Blue embossing powder.

I die cut the Grad Cap twice from black cardstock and saved the negative pieces.  I added a bit of gold to these negative pieces using a Nuvo Mica Mist  (Antique Gold) and then adhered the second outline die cut on top.

I cut off the tassel that is part of the die cut and added this one for an even more realistic look.

The card base was dry embossed using a Tonic Studios embossing folder (Simple Stripes).

Until next week.....
