Graduation Card

Here's Yoshi again by Sister Stamps.   In this scene, he's so happy and tossed his graduation cap in the air.   The cap stamp is by Stampendous which came with the tassel.   But to give it dimension, I cut it off, made a tiny hole in the center of the cap, and used embroidery thread.   


 Here's a close-up....
 His "diploma" is a rolled up piece of vellum paper which I tied with twine.


I think there's a lot you can do with Yoshi.   Flip him over and he's doing cartwheels, like on Leanne's blog that she posted a few weeks ago.  She's so clever.   He also looks like he's dancing, which is another card I made and will post soon.

Other supplies:  Clouds by Memory Box, Congrats and doggie stamp by Dandelion Design,  grass stamp by Viva Las Vegasstamps, Distress Ink, Spellbinder dies, Copics, and washi paper.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting.
