Congrats to the Graduates of 2011!

It's that time of year again....graduation!  Well I had several young adults to make cards for and I wanted to make them something 'different' I made them an easel card.  Tracy from CraftJunkieToo inspired me to make an easel card with her watermelon easel card so that's just what I did! 
Now, I had never made one before and it took me a little while to do it, but once I created one, then the others followed along pretty quickly, thank goodness!  :)  I really wondered if I could make another after that first one, but I did! ha!

I personalized each card to the graduate's school colors as well!

Here's the side view!

Here's the view of the inside!  I used a Graduate stamp I picked up at ACMoore for $1 and then used the Everyday Pop-Up Cards cartridge to cut the cap and tassel.  I cut these at 2.5".

I used a stamp set I had picked up on clearance awhile back to indicate the month and year which I thought turned out as a nice touch.

Below is a 4"x 6" paper that I printed with instructions for the frame/easel and a congratulations from me and my hubby!  I also used another graduate stamp that I picked up in the $1 bin at ACMoore!  I used the clear photo corners to adhere this so it would also hold their new 4"x 6" graduation photos!

Everyone loved their cards and mentioned that they had a picture already in mind to put in their new frames! :)

Congratulations again graduates of 2011!
