Another graduation card to share today. This one was for a cousin's son who also graduated from Seattle University. A simple cap and gown style card, and since the graduate is from Hawaii, of course I had to add a maile lei! I think it's just the coolest thing that nowadays no matter which college graduation across the country you attend, you'll see so many of the graduates adorned with leis. A wonderful Hawaiian style tradition that has become a popular trend across the nation.
This graduation card opens up to be an easel style card. I used the "Mans Suit and Tie Easel Card" file from My ScrapChick to make this, but left the lapels off from the original file and added on an additional v-neck layer instead to make it look more like a graduation gown. The lei was made using a Sizzix Stampin' Up Little Leaves die; I cut and layered several of branches together to look like a maile lei.
The graduation cap is simply a punched square with a brad and a tassel made from embroidery floss; and the diploma is a piece of vellum rolled and tied with some ribbon. Quick and easy, just the way I like it! Hoping the happy graduate liked it too!
