After cutting all of the cardstock, I stamped the background using Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Inspiration stamp set. Although this set wasn't intended to be a graduation set, I knew it offered the perfect advice for any graduate. After marking off a spot for my banner, I stamped the caps. Next, I stamped my sentiment onto a banner that I had cut out using my Cricut. Since I wanted a thinner shadow than my machine would cut, I hand cut the yellow banner. Finally, I added a rhinestone to the top of each cap, adhered the layers and my card was done. Here's a closer look:
I will leave you with a picture of the tossing of the caps from Sunday's celebration. What a fun tradition! I still can't believe that I am the mother of a high-school graduate!
