Quickie Graduation Cap Card

 After returning from a rather long trip, I realized I had only a week to put together a graduation card and post it on this blog.  A quick trip to HM Ben Franklin Crafts made creating these cards a snap.  I purchased some double sided printed card stock, Little B and Doodlebug washi tapes,  Little B stickers, Darice star embossing folder, and a Rubber Stamp Plantation brushstroke graduation cap rubber stamp (sorry, it's not in the supplies photo).
 I started by stamping the cap several times on a white panel before using the embossing folder to impress some stars on the panel. Sorry that the photo just barely shows this effect, but I think it looks really good.  Next I punched out a 2-1/2" circle from the DP and die cut the 'congrats' with the Hero Arts die. It was easy peasy to attach the die cut word and stickers (the black cap was from my stash). Voila!  Instant card!

Here is what the card looks like with the inside decorated with the washi easy to do!  I hope this post has shown you that you don't need lots of time or supplies to make a special handmade graduation card.  Congrats to all Grads!
