Opening the card:
The round black roll at the bottom of the sentiment is a place to slip in some money. It looks like a little diploma when you have it in there.
You could change the colors around for your school colors. Or even if you didn’t have the stars stamp set wouldn’t it be cute with mini “caps” poking out. I really like cards that move or pop out don’t you? I think it adds to the fun!
If you would like to see a video of how this card was made drop me a comment.
