Hats off to the Grad

Can you believe it's almost May?  It seems like the month of May is even crazier than December!  There's Graduations, Mother's Day, Memorial Day and Confirmations.  I'm trying to get ahead so here's one of the graduation cards that I've made so far.  Check it out:

I started with white card stock for the base of my card and layered a black and white checked patterned paper on a portion of it.  Then, I layered a scalloped die and the graduation cap on top of it.  A lot of the kids at our church go to Shawnee Mission West and their colors are black and gold so I colored the cap and the bow around the diploma in those colors.  The graduation cap and diploma as well as the "Congratulations" sentiment are all from Two Paper Divas latest stamp set called "You Did It!"  To complete this project, I die cut a pendant border and a couple of stars on a silver glitter paper and added them to the card to make it special for the graduate! 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by Kirby's Kards!  I hope I have provided you with a little inspiration to create some graduation cards of your own.

Make it a great day!
