Another Graduation Card How-To

Hope you've had a great week, so far. I thought I'd share some of the other Graduation Cards I made using the Spring Card. If you'd like to make the Spring Card, I posted a TUTORIAL on Monday's post and I've included a little "How-To" below for the detailing of the cards shown here.

These make great graduation caps and you can personalize them by using the graduate's school colors.I used the stampset Take a Spin...I love all the special occasion choices and the little spinner hands! Have fun trying these out for yourself.
Cardstock - (5-1/4x10-1/2") Bravo Burgundy; (3-3/8x3-3/8" - front panel) (2x2-1/2"-stamp/punch piece) More Mustard; (3x4" punch piece) Basic Black; (3x3") Whisper White
Big Shot - Square Lattice texture impression folder
Punches: Star; 3/4" circle; 2-1/2" circle Hand punch
Stamp Set -Take a Spin
Ink - Cherry Cobbler; Basic Black Stampin' Write marker
Accessories - Game spinner hands, Cutter/Scorer, Ruler, 56" black embroidery floss, dimensionals, SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip

1. Create the Spring Card as shown HERE. Ink up Take a Spin stamp with Cherry Cobbler. Use Basic Black marker and color in all the outer circle "Happy's". Give stamp a few "huff's" with your breath and stamp image on 3x3 Whisper White CS. Punch out stamped image using the 2-1/2" circle punch.
2. Punch out 4 black stars. Run 3-3/8" square More Mustard through Big Shot using the Square Lattice textured impression folder. Snail textured More Mustard square to the front of Bravo Burgundy card. Snail 3 of the Basic Black stars at the top and 2 side corners.
3. Punch a 3/4" More Mustard circle and snail to center of stamped Whisper White image. Snail the 4th Basic Black star to center of stamped image.
4. Make a tassle as shown  HERE, in Step 13. Punch a hole in the center of stamped circle image and attach the brad through the game spinner hand, thread brad through the top loop of black tassle, then add the washer, fastening brad ends to the back of stamped circle. Dimensional stamped Whisper White circle to center of card front.
