You know, it’s been strange this year not having any kids in–the traditional sense of the word–school. You don’t think about the holidays when all the kids are out. Spring break? Yeah, when’s that? No graduations to attend or have your kids go to for their friends. You kind of become oblivious to it all which is really weird when it was a part of your life–or rather, pretty much all  your life for like 20 years or so.

It’s really weird.

But, it is that time of year and has Nichol got the grad card idea for you! This pop-up card was originally the one that said ‘Thanks.’ Awesome that you have the skills (said in my Napoleon Dynamite voice) to create your own sentiment, eh?


Turned out fabulous, darling!
Can you imagine the oohs and aahs over receiving that grad card?

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I changed the greeting for the “thanks” pop up card to “graduate” and used the freebie design “congrats” for the outside of my card so that it reads “congrats graduate”. I added a graduation cap from Kerri’s Graduation Kit to the letter “o” in “congrats”.

A note about cutting the inside pop up: I had originally tried cutting the pop up from cardstock however I found it a bit too bulky to work with and liked how the patterned paper I ended up using looked instead. :) I used stamping to accent the die cut elements on my card.

It is divine, Miss Nichol! Thank you so much for sharing your card talent here with us this week!

Don’t forget, the Hello There class will be on sale for 20% off through the rest of the week!
