Graduation Card #2

It's SUMMER!! YAY! My kids last day of school was Thursday! My middle son graduated 8th grade and my baby graduated Pre-School! My oldest will be a Junior now! I love having my kids home! The high school graduation isn't until June 5 so I still have time to make a few more cards. Hopefully things will settle down a little now and I can spend more time paper crafting. I really need to work on my scrapbooks! I am soooo far behind! Anyway, we are going to watch the girls Varsity Softball team play today in Lufkin. I wanted to show ya'll the graduation card I made. My boys really like this one a lot. I use orange on the cards because our school colors are black and orange.

I cut the "congrats" using my cricut.

I cut an extra one and cut off the graduation cap and used pop dots for dimension. I made the tassel with embroidery floss. I colored the letters with orange marker and covered it with STICKLES! I use stickles a lot.

I made another pocket for the inside of this card also. I usually give money for graduation, especially for the guys!
Thanks for stopping by and looking. Sorry it's been so long since I've done anything. I'm hoping we will have a very relaxing summer vacation and that I'll have time to do lot's of scrapbooking and card making! Ya'll have a wonderful day!!
