Throwback Thursday - Easy Graduation Card

Obviously, this card dates back to last year and there's really not a whole lot to it. I cut out the two pieces of the graduation cap out of basic black cardstock freehand. The mortarboard was attached to the card base with dimensionals. The only stamped image is the sentiment from the All Year Cheer III set stamped on the mortarboard with versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The center of the mortarboard is a large white brad. I made the attached tassel with white baker's twine. I die cut the numbers for the year using Tim Holtz Alphanumeric Thinlits from Sizzix.

That's it. Couldn't be easier. (OK, maybe it could if you used rub ons or stickers for the greeting and numbers - especially if you didn't have heat embossing tools and/or the thinlits on hand.) Sometimes quick and simple is more important than elaborate and artistic, especially knowing that most graduates focus much more on what's tucked into or attached to the card :).

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
