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'.....so 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!
