A simple graduation card for today.

I cut the graduation cap (from Lifestyle Crafts, formerly Quickutz) from black and white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with a JustRite Stamper. I cut the plain white circle with a Nestability and the scalloped black circle with a Marvy punch. I mounted the hat and the black circle on foam squares. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder and is matted with black on a white card base.  EDITED TO ADD:  I replaced the picture with a new one after I added the diploma.  I had forgotten that I wanted it on there!  The diploma is also a Lifestyle die.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Bought that diploma die last year and never used it but was glad to find your card again (your blog is easy to navigate through) and see how you used it. I have 12 graduation cards to make - still casing your 2010 card!!!
