Large Graduation Card

Hi everyone, a new post with a change from weddings this time. 
Very happy with the way it turned out, being that the only pre - made stuff I used was a tassel and printed card candi - all the rest is from basics, ribbon, card, die cuts, ink and embossing techniques..

So the colour scheme is a classic one for a graduation card and I loved making the mortar board using bits of die cuts, a pair of scissors and a ruler and scalpel until I was happy with the shape.
A chance to use an embossing folder which was still in its packaging - yayy!!
I partially embossed the inside of the card and yes its a large 7 and 3/4 inch card.

Some close up photographs- many attempts at getting a photograph to show the black embossed card!

The mortar board was layered using different thicknesses of foam pads and a bit of tweaking here and there.....

the little scroll was made using white card, cutting the edge roughly with scissors and tying some 3mm ribbon around it.
