Class of 2016/Graduation Large Square Pop Up Z Fold Cards

Another card we have been making at classes this week to share. I had a special request for a couple of graduation cards - so the Large Square Pop Up Z Fold card came to the rescue again... Tutorial here...

This is the version I made as the class inspiration...
And this is the version then created by Heidi to reflect the female recipient of the second she needed... And then we all had to laugh... we were all swooning at the Melon Mambo mortar boards and card! ...  and none of us are exactly into the pinks... Maybe the universities should become more daring and go for colour co-ordinating mortar boards after all!! Great card Heidi....
The CLASS letters are all stamped (using the new Letters For You stamp set) and then gold heat embossed. I didn't think this would work as the stamps have a mottled effect within them.... but a slight extra heating of the embossing powder seemed to give an extra flow/filling in... then they are all die cut (Large Letters dies)  Letters For You bundle with 10% off here...

The other Large Letters and Large Numbers are just all die cut...
The mortar board is simply a die cut square (using the new Layering Squares dies). Picked up with tweezers and each edge inked up direct on the Whisper White craft ink pad.
The tassel is stamped (from the Celebrate Today stamp set) and then die-cut (using the Balloon dies). And the Congratulations GRAD! wording is from the BYOP stamp set
