Graduation


I have scheduled both my posts this weekend as I am at craft fairs both days. I don't normally do two at a weekend but they are two regular ones which I didn't want to miss. 

I have a really simple card today. I bought this graduation outfit years ago before I discovered stamping and thought it was time I used it. The paper is Papermania Ahoy There and I have used the offcuts as borders. I love doing that with striped paper. I found the sentiments in my stash. I made the scroll with a piece of rolled card and a Crafttime tassel. I bought two packs of these, 5 in a pack reduced from £1.99 a pack to 10p in Dunelm Mill. The tassel was much too long so gave it a chop and job done.

A great graduation card Marianne. Thanks for the inspiration. I will need to make a graduation card for my daughter in July and this has certainly given me an idea.
