Graduation and Lei

It's June n it';s graduation time!  Made this graduation card for my Grand Niece.  It's mature looking since she will be going on to College in the Fall. It's a pretty easy card to make. Finished size 5-1/2" X 4-1/4". Papers used are from my stash and left over from previous graduations. X Cut doCrafts 3D Stars embossing folder used on the blue card stock.
Card inside: Scraps of leftover papers from previous graduation along with the "congrats" Darice Graduation Theme die used.
Graduation hat is from the Darice Graduation Theme die. It is die cut twice: trim the hat top itself and die cut the tassel, trim in the contrast school color. Pop the whole hat with foam tape.
 Diploma is also part of the Darice Graduation Theme die. Die cut it twice, then trim off the top of the diploma, pop with foam tape to achieve 3D look.  Tie the diploma with blue organdy ribbon.
For the graduation, a ribbon lei made with the school colors:
