  1. This is so CLEVER!!! All the way down to the “apple” iPod. I just can’t get over the imagination you have in this card. AWESOME!

  2. Is there anything you can’t do?! The details are stunning in this card. Love the backpack! This card has so.many.clever.details!

  3. Wow! You hit it out of the ballpark again! So creative! Such attention to detail!

  4. Awesome use of this Pop ‘N Cut and Dress Die! What a WOW card!

  5. Fran, you are having WAY too much fun with this die! LOL! Your attention to detail just blows me away.

  6. WOW!!! This is fabulous!! I’m having such a great time finding all these “out of the box” ideas for this die. I was afraid it would be too limiting but you just proved just how versatile it is! Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Wow Fran, you have so many fab ideas for the pop ‘n’ cuts. Thanks so much for sharing. Inky wishes, Di

    Can you provide directions on how you made the cap and gown portion of the card? It’s awesome and I’d love to learn how to make these.

  9. To make the gown, I traced the dress form Framelit on a piece of grid paper and then just drew sleeves and bottom. I used a 1/2″ circle to make the neckline.  This became my pattern for the gown.  I added two 1/2″ strips of cardstock to either side of the front of the gown to make the pleats in the front.  The white cowl on the gown are two 1″ circles – the top one having a 1/2″ circle “bite” out of it to make the neckline.  The mortar board is a 1/2″ circle cut in half with a 5/8″ square on top.  
    Hope this helps!  Hugs, Fran
  10. I loved your graduation card so much that I just had to make one myself. However, I don’t think mine came out as good as yours.
    Thanks for sharing.
    I’ll post mine at my blog http://www.queenbeascraps.blogspot.com

  11. Fran do you mind sharing how you made the tassel for the graduation gown and hat??

  12. Sure, Rolanda!  I took a 1/4 circle and fringed the ends, almost up to the top – but leaving enough to look like the top of a tassel.  Just cut it in pieces for the tassels.  They are tiny – but once you start cutting the circle, I think you’ll see what I mean.  If not – let me know!  Hugs, Fran
