Graduation - The Gypsy Spot Design Team Card

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.

This is my The Gypsy Spot Design Team card for this week.... our mission was to use black and gold... the paper I chose for this project dictated its simplicity... I was really happy with how it turned out... it is for a young man that I use to work with... a very sweet, good, kind young man that I just love to death... so it needed to be masculine... and those are hard to do!!... hope that you like it!!...I hope that he does too.
Be sure and check out The Gypsy Spot and see the wonderful things the other design team members have come up with!!  Thanks for looking... Hugs Jeannie

When you are stacking shapes like I did in this card, behind the graduation cap, get the shape you want... make it the size you want for the largest piece... then duplicate that shape... click the button that makes, a shape smaller, 2 times... repeat this process for each piece until you have as many stacks as you want.
This will give you perfect intervals between shapes.
Squares cut @ sm. w 2.64 x h 2.46, md. w 3.06 x w 2.86 and lg. w 3.33 x 3.11 ...on the Cricut I would cut these at 2 1/2. 2 3/4 and 3 inches.
Locker Talk
Caps and the tassel layer cut @ w 3.15 x h 2.0...I cut two ..on the top layer I trimmed the bottom part of the cap off..and popped the square part from that piece...I trimmed the tassel  from the piece with the bottom left on... on the Cricut I would cut these at 2 inches.
Smaller Cap on inside of card  cut @ w 2.15 x h 1.37 I used a gold gel pen for the tassel  ... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 1/4 inches.
Wild Card
"Congratulations" cut @ w 3.12 x h 5.14... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 1/4 inches on real dial size.
