Graduation Card

Click here for the Stamp Something 3rd Birthday Blog Hop

I can't believe I have a graduate! I wanted a special card for my son. I ran across this fun pop up and am really pleased with how it turned out! Congrats to all the grads! The inside paper is from my local scrapbook store (Scrapbook's Etc.). They carry scrapbooking items for all the local schools. The little tassle is made out of embroidery floss and silver thread. I totally winged that hehe. The flap on the inside right opens up for the sentiment. I think this is the first time ever I've done the inside of a card first hehe.
