Graduation Cap Thank You Card

Graduation Cap Thank You Card

(I’m sorry I keep sharing “out of season” projects, but I’m still trying to catch up…)

In addition to all the graduation cards my kids needed to give, they also needed a few thank you notes as well.  I decided to make 3 different designs so if they all received a gift from the same person, the gift-giver wouldn’t receive 3 of the same thank you card design.

This first one was popping up all over Pinterest so I thought I’d give it a try.  The cap opens to reveal the handwritten note.  (It’s kind of a small area, so Kelly needed to write small.  She was actually able to fit more on there than I did on my sample!)

Gina K Red Velvet, black and white card stock was used.  The stamps are from the Fiskars “Monumental Moments” set and the Hampton Art set #SC0752.  Glittery Recollections brads were used as the tassel buttons on the tops of the caps.

I made the tassels from red embroidery thread and brush fringe.  (This fringe was very difficult to work with because there is one thread holding it all together, and I kept losing pieces as I tried to separate it to tie the embroidery thread around the tops.  I had pieces of red fringe everywhere!!  I felt like I was all thumbs!  Maybe if my fingers were daintier…)

HERE is the tutorial video I used to create this card.
