Blue and Gold Graduation Card

 
 
 
Yes, it's me again and this time with a graduation card for a niece. I found several of this type card on Pinterest but am using this one from Welcome to Stampin @ the Mall for a guide. I'm not sure how she made her white shirt. For my blouse, I used a craft knife and then inserted a white piece of cardstock inside. It will also be the piece I stamp on and write a note.
 
I made the cap by cutting a 1 1/2" square and punched a circle for the button on the top. The tassel is embroidery thread. Buttons are from Jolee's Boutique notion kit, given to me by my sis.
 
If you like this card, you should give it a try. It's easy and fun.

Hallo Brenda,
eine schöne Idee der Kartengestaltung. So etwas könnte ich mir auch gut für einen Seemann vorstellen. Das hast du prima gemacht.
Liebe Grüße, Anja
