An Atlantic Hearts Graduation Card

I am sorry to have disappeared off the face of the earth, but it has been a difficult time for my family.  One good thing that has happened, however, is my nephew's graduation from Virginia Tech which called for a return to my craft room.  I used Close to My Heart's Pro Player paper, A Thing Well Done stamp set, and this Atlantic Hearts sketch to make a card with an engineering theme.

I used the new thin foam tape to pop up the blue panel just enough to accommodate the bulk of the ribbon.  Then I used regular foam tape to pop up the sentiment.  Here is the inside:

Thank you for stopping by!  Now please check out some more cards at Atlantic Hearts.  Until next time, Hansi

Materials used, all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Pro Player (retired), White Daisy and Whisper cardstock
Stamps:  A Thing Well Done (retired)
Ink:  Ruby, Outdoor Denim, Black
Embellishments:  ribbon from Outdoor Denim Mini Medley (retired), Hanger and brad (retired)
