I started this card by embossing the base with the Clocks Embossing Plate .
I then layered the Burlap Border near the bottom. That gave me the base I wanted to build on.
Along the left side I have cut the Pierced Banners (Set of 3) out of map paper and matted it with black cardstock. Because of the printed sentiment "The Sky is the Limit" I thought the plane from the new Fun Travel Die Set would be perfect to layer on the banner and make it a great guy card.
The burlap border made a nice background to layer the grad hat and diploma on from the Graduation Set (Set of 2. I used gold paper for the tassle and ribbon as well as for the Graduation sentiment. I used some gold outline sticker along the top.
I used the two of the dies from the Say What? (Set of 16 for the clouds in the sky and to print the sentiments on.
This is a front view of the card. All die cuts are popped up for added dimension. The banner I glued just along the top of the card and let it stick out at the bottom for even more dimension. I was quite pleased with the way the Graduation Set and the NEW Fun Travel Die Set pair so well together to create this card.
