Pure Gumption is perfection for a folding graduation card

I think this card is lookin' fine for a great graduation card. Sure, most graduations are over, but it's never too early to make a card or two to keep in your stash for a graduation a year or two down the road. My friend and downline, Mary Ann, brought this card as a make and take to our last American Ink gathering. The sentiment is from Pure Gumption on page 52 in the big catalog. We stamped that first before running the Whisper White layer through the Big Shot in the Fancy Fan embossing folder. The hat is two red pieces of card stock cut 2" square, with a silver mini brad holding the twine tassel.

Ha ha! I took this photo upside down by mistake with my phone! Anyway, you can see how the inside of the hat is stamped, and there's a third sentiment inside the card. The inside of the hat is a white square that was folding in half each way, then folded on one diagonal. You push in the diagonal score lines so one square lines up with the other. I hope that makes sense!
My 20-card class was fun Saturday. I'll be posting those 10 card designs this week. I'm playing with clay today for a club project and will have those club cards to post too.

Mary Ann did a fantastic job with the graduation card! I just adore the hat with tassel. I have to make a mental note for future creations ... lol.
