Graduation Cap Card

My niece graduated from Bryant University on May 20. Of course, I needed a card that would also function as a gift holder. I found a petal envelope template at Mirkwood Designs The square shape reminded me of a mortarboard (graduation cap). A scrap of black Canson Mi Tientes, a button, and a tassel made from an embroidery floss skein complete the illusion

The petals interlock to seal the card. Open to reveal the sentiment. The square is 3 inches and just the right size to hold a folded, crisp, Ben Franklin.


  1. That is a really cool card CJ. Perfect for graduation. I love how you added the tassel to make it really look like a mortar board. :) Hugs-Erika

  2. Mirkwood has some great templates. I used her paper doll template years ago. This one is perfect for the mortarboard design you chose.

    In reference to your comment about Remembrance Day on my blog post today, that is Europe's (specifically the UK's) name for the Sunday before Veteran's Day. It may be confusing because of our moment of Remembrance, possibly because both are celebrated in the States, while the majority of the world only celebrates Armistice/Remembrance/Veterans Day. Memorial Day is ours alone.

    1. I've used a lot of Mirkwood's templates. She has some great stuff.

  3. Love it! I'm sure your niece did too:)

  4. Excellent idea!! So cool! Love it! Congrats to your niece!
