Are you in need of a graduation card? If so this Cap and Gown card should do the trick. It is very simple to make.
I seen these a few years in a row and each year I say I have to make some…. Well Glenda one of my teammates did one for our challenge last month and BOOM I was this is it I have to make it and share a video. Thank YOU Glenda for the inspiration.
I have the video below or you can find it on my You Tube Channel. Also in the video I share a simple way to make a tassel. Well let just say in the video I was trying to rush the tassel and couldn’t tie it fast enough but it is simple.
- Card Base 11 x 4¼ score at 5½
- Whisper white for the V layer. 4¼ x 4 make a make on the 4¼ side cut from each side diagonal all show in the video. 5¼ x 4 inside
- Top V layer 3¼ x 3 make a mark on the 3¼ side at 1-5/8 and cut diagonal
- Circle top layer is 1¼ and bottom one is 1¼
- Cap 1½ x 1½
I use different color for each cards. I needed graduation cards for different school so I match the school color. One is in Early Espresso and Crushed Curry for Wyoming. Merry Merlot for Washington. The black and Merry Merlot is a spare one because I know at the last minute I will need a graduation card and this will do. It is more fun when we know the colors but sometime we have to take what we got for last minute.
Cap and tassel
I did a simple hats 1½ x 1½ and sponge whisper White around to give some depth. I adhere it with a dimentional to pop it up. The tassel you will see in the video how to make it with bake twine or check the clearance rack for the pre made one. The link is below for the clearance tassel.
