Cardz TV 3-D Challenge

Happy Friday!!!
If you haven't seen the announcement over at Cardz TV, I have been given the honor to join the
3-D DT. 
And my first creation........................

I created a gift card holder.  My creation appears simple, but let me tell you, some planning and just a bit of creativity went into this beauty.  *wink*
The basic envelope/tag for the holder is a Jamie Lane Designs file.
I LOVE the look of this...but I needed a graduation I substituted the birthday cake for a grad cap.  That cap and tassel I used is from a Scraptastical Kreations file.  I used my Silhouette software to combine all the pieces and size them accordingly. 
I created an offset of the graduation cap so that I had a base for it to be assembled and displayed on.   And for the holder base, I created an offset so that I had a mat for all the pieces to sit upon. 
The diploma and banner were both popped up on foam squares.
For the sentiment, on the banner,  I used Cardz TV 'This & That' stamp set
I curved the stamp slightly on my acrylic block so that the words fit the banner a bit better. The sentiment was stamped with Ranger Archival Ink.
