Another grad card

 My daughter's favorite color combo includes this bright green and blue together, so although her school colors are red and black, I thought I'd go with a card for her that was special.  I added glitter to the front (and now I have glitter everywhere!!)

 I used the spiral circles on the inside so that it pops up the little graduation caps when it is opened.  It's cute.  The grad cap is from a Studio G set that I've had for ages.

Graduation cards!!

I was really pleased with how these turned out!  I knew what I wanted to do with the inside...but it was the outside that I hoped would turn out...and I like them!!

I followed the tutorial from Carol of Extreme Cards and Papercrafting for her wonderful pop up graduation cap.  I LOVE it!

It was so well done, easy to follow, and I think I got spectacular results.  Love that she took so much time to get it just right and shared!!!

 I made nine of them and hope that's enough for some of my senior daughter's friends.

I used the EKSuccess Christmas tree border punch for the pennants...I use the negative and positive pieces to create the bordered pennant shapes. The scroll banner and front banner were made from the Cuttlebug Fanciful Labels.  The stars are from MFT.  I used the stars Cuttlebug embossing folder on the front background and hand cut the grad caps for the inside.  I hope to still add a tassel, but if I don't get around to it, I think it will still be great.  I stamped the "2012" with little alphabet/number stamps that I've had for eons.  They always seem to come in handy!  Hope you like them as much as I do!
