Blue Ribbon Graduation

One of our cards for April card class was geared towards graduation, since I seem to get told the day before or OF, that my husband needs several for students so I came up with a basic one that you could change colors accordingly to school pretty easily.  This one in particular is done in Elegant Eggplant, Basic Gray and Black. I randomly stamped the Congrats Grad in Basic Gray onto Basic Gray cardstock, and then stamped the ribbon from the stamp set Blue Ribbon in Elegant Eggplant onto Whisper White cardstock and  punched out with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch and popped it up using Dimensionals  and then stamped the ribbon flags in the same ink and fussy cut them with my scissors and adhered it to the underneath of the ribbon.  I ran a piece of Silver Glimmer paper through the Apothecary Framelits and adhered it under the ribbon and punched out a couple of Basic Black stars using the Itty Bitty shapes punches and used Dimensionals to adhere them to the Glimmer paper.   All my classes had different school colors so we changed out the colors in 3 classes using Pumpkin Pie and Real Red for some of them too.  It was neat to see how it could be changed up so quickly.
