2017 Graduation Box Card and Lei

Had two graduations this year. This graduation is for school colors Orange and Black. Graduation box card works best.  In addition, a ribbon lei was made to accompany this card (it was sent to the East Coast: New Jersey).  Recollections Black and White card stock used for this card.  Doodlebug Cap and Gown decorative paper (used on the back). 
My Momenta Star Dies cut using Orange card stock, then randomly positioned on the card.
Flap sentiments were computer generated.  Box card finished size: 6-3/4" x 6" (flat).
Here's a closer look at the card:
Side view of card:
Card Back: stamped using Hero Arts CL336 Clear Graduation Stamps, black ink. Creative Time Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die is at the bottom holding the Michael's Gift Card.
Computer generated words used on the flaps and on the inside back panel. 
"2017" was generated using my Silhouette Computer program. Graduation hat is a dimensional sticker left over from my stash. Ovals were also computer generated, cut using the Silhouette.
Right side flap:
Impression Obsession DIE296-T cut using orange card stock, off set with black card stock.  "Hana" is also cut using the Silhouette.
Here is the card flat, ready to be placed in an envelope:
The ribbon lei:
All ribbons were purchased from Hawaii (a store called U'l Mau a Mau LLC 808-888-9487) . Length of lei is 42" long.  In order for this lei not to look like it is Halloween, only 1/8" black with gold edges were used for the subtle "spikes" along with green "spikes".  The Orange Satin Organdy with Gold(outer petal) makes the lei softer in feel and appearance. Orange flowers are a double petal: inside petal is solid satin Orange ribbon.
Here's how the lei looks in a row.
Thanks for stopping by today..............have a crafty day~!
