Congrats, Son! You did it!

My son graduated from high school this past Sunday. I am so incredibly proud of him! The graduation was held at the Historical Gettysburg Hotel and the ceremony had a historical atmosphere with period music and a speech by a President Lincoln impersonator. He graduated with 43 other homeschoolers. It was a really great time.
This is the card I made for him. I typed the scripture and printed it, then used a Labels One die to cut it. The numbers were cut with my Cricut using the Street Sign cartridge and the graduation cap is a Sizzix die. I made the tassel using embroidery floss and wrapped it around a button. I adhered the cap with pop dots to give it dimension.
Have a blessed day!

Supplies

Paper-White, Pure Poppy, True Black, Black & White Basics (Papertrey)
Accessories-Labels One dies, Cricut Street Sign cartridge, mortarboard & tassel thin cuts die, true black button (PTI), embroidery floss, pop dots
