Class of 2015

Hi There!
Yep, I have a second post today...yesterday I had 3, 
sometimes it just happens that way...LOL!

I am the Guest Designer this week at "My Sheri Crafts".
The challenge theme is "It's Graduation Day".
You can make a graduation or school project.


I chose a CAS, and a little classy I think Graduation card!
I started with that all time favorite embossing folder of mine
(I am giving you a purchase link if interested, as it is kind of hard to find)
and if you use the code DIANE-10 at checkout, you can save 10%.

I printed the words "class of 2015" from "WORD",
then used my Cheery Lynn Designs banner die to cut it out.
I remember seeing this die on another blog and I just had to have it!
I have used it numerous times since!

I made a little grad cap by punching out a 1" square,
mounting it on a white card stock, then trimming around the edge.
I made my tassel with embroidery floss and attached it with a glittery brad.

Pretty clean and simple, but effective don't you think?.

One thing about making a black and white grad card is,
it's good for any school without having to worry about school colors!
However, I didn't realize black cards were as difficult to photograph as white ones are!
Thanks for visiting with me today!

You can do one or a hundred posts a day and I'll see every one of them. I'm a little behind right now with so much going on, but trying to catch up tonight. This is such a cute and imaginative card. Simple and perfect for a grad. Clever way to do the cap. Love the sun ray embossing folder with this. Very cool!
