Kevin's Graduation Cap- SCIC05


It's week five for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge! This week we are inspired by this set of pictures. It was perfect for me, because I needed to make a graduation card for a recent high school grad and his school colors are green and black!

Here is what I came up with! I didn't wan the card to be too girly or cute, so I stuck to pretty simple and basic things. I made the graduation cap by following the tutorial I made here, I just made it bigger so it would be the size of the card. I then added the paper tassel to the hat. I used my White Gel Pen to "draw" on the hat top like they do on real graduation caps.

In this picture you can see I embossed the Garden Green card stock using the Big Shot and the Diamonds embossing plate.

Thanks for looking!

And remember to check out the Stampin' Celebration blog to give the challenge a try your self! While you are there make sure to check out the other Design Team members projects this week too!
