Grad Card

Created this Graduation Card after seeing one similar to it but did not put it on my Pinterest board or write it down so I'm not sure who to give credit to.

Embossed white cardstock with Darice Grad Hat Background embossing folder. Added ribbon to a strip of maroon cardstock. Attached twine to brad in center of grad hat that is
2" square black cardstock. Decided not to paint brad all black and let it be the zebra black & white that it was. Popped the Grad hat up using foam adhesive. Used a Stampin' Up sentiment & die for sentiment tag.

Supplies List

adhesive: foam on back of Grad Hat
brad: black/white center of Grad Hat
embossing: Darice Grad Hat Background embossing folder
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - cardstock - black, maroon, white
Stampin' Up: die - Bitty Banners, stamp - Itty Bitty Banners sentiment
