Congrats Ash On your Masters
A couple of weeks ago it was my friends Son's graduation and he did very well. She used to make her own cards but since starting work has found it difficult, so she asked me to do one for her. I didn't have a clue what to do but I know he got a 1st so this is what I came up with.
She was thrilled with it and I just hope he liked it too.
To do the hat I first punched out a best badge and cut it down with a slight angle, next I punched out a tree, turned it round and pushed again taking the trunk off and giving me a diamond shape, for the tassle I used DMC thread.
Sorry there's a lot of retired items used but it was how it came together. I'm sure it could be done with more up to date items but I was under pressure to get it done ASAP as she needed it a couple of days later.
The materials used are:
(r) = retired, (nsu) = not stampin’ up
Card stock: Crushed curry, elegant eggplant, whisper white
Ink: black tuxedo (memento), elegant eggplant versaMark
DSP: It’s my party (r)
Stamp sets: Blue ribbon (r), number of years, sky is the limit (r), Teeny tiny sentiments
Embossing folders: sparkle
Embossing powders: Black (r)
Framelits: Layering circles, large numbers, stitched shapes
Punches: Best badge, tree (r), classic label, modern label (r)
Accessories: bakers twine (r), DMC thread (nsu)
The "Gaining A Masters Degree" was computer generated
Will be back again soon with more cards
