It is that time of the year where eager young minds are about to be let loose in the world. I am still trying to wrap head around that fact that one of those young minds is one of my best friends sons and only a year older then mine. Making this card was a little bit of a reminder that this time next year it will be my very own eager young mind counting down the days till high school grad.

I love this double-sided Designer Paper from TPC Studio, the silver and black academic hats were perfect for this card. It took me forever to create the tassel that I crafted from embroidery thread but it turned out great. I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot software for cutting out the Congradulations, I am still trying to get the hang of sizing but it worked out well. I embossed 2 academic hats in silver on black cardstock then cut them out and used foam tape to create an embellishment.

Supplies: Natural White, black and silver cardstock, Designer Paper-TPC Studio, TPC Studio-Graduation, Celebrate It ribbon, black and silver embroidery thread
