Pop Up Masculine Graduation Card

Don't you just love the times of year that you get to make cards for those most wonderful celebrations? Lets face it we can only make Graduation cards.....well when someone graduate!, The whole time you are thinking of the graduate and the years ahead of them as well as the years you have watched them grow! I LOVED making this card for a young man that just finished high school. I used the Everyday Pop Up cards Cricut cartridge for all of the cuts on this fun "guy"card.

Now lets talk about pop ups...there are several ways to use the pop up images on this cartridge, and my way may not be the official way in the directions. {refer to my profile...creative rule breaker} I have some previous experience with pop up cards, so I make them the way I know, and like. There is no law that says you have to make them one way or another!  *giggle* As long as the card closes without destroying the pop up, you are in business!

A little hand rolled scroll with black hemp twine ribbon, and a stamped tag are the perfect greeting.

This paper was just a lined paper print, I stamped the sentiments in black and distressed inks to create a custom printed paper. I employed one of my favorite little tricks of using foam tape to "pop up" the layers of the graduation cap. I'm sure he will love this card...especially if I put a little cash in it! LOL

Happy creating,

Brilliant card…CAS, yet wonderful details with the ribbon treatment & diploma. I still horde my CC Boyfriend papers; I should use them to create a fab grad card like you :)
