I stamped and colored a cap and diploma from Sunny Studio Stamps "Woo Hoo" stamp set and fussy cut them. I also added the happy graduation sentiment to the front of the card.
Then I cut a piece of white fun foam slightly smaller than the gray cardstock and die cut the same size circle in the center to match my gray cardstock. I glued the piece of fun foam to the back of the gray carstock to add some dimension.

I made a cardbase out of Neenah 110 lb. white cardstock and I stamped the Woo Hoo sentiment in the center, making sure to line it up with the die cut circle in the gray cardstock. I then glued a couple of sequins in place so that they will be visible all the time, even when shaking the card. I used a blue holographic 5mm sequin mix and some silver stars.

I glued the gray cardstock with the fun foam on top of the sequins.
This is how it looks after you shake it.
I added glossy accents to the cap to make it nice and shiny and also to the red bow on the diploma. It gives it a nice sparkle and shine that matches the sequins.
To finish the card, I stamped the following sentiment on the inside of the card.
This sentiment and strawberry are from the "Fresh & Fruity" stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps. The strawberry outline I stamped with Versafine onyx black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and I added some dots with a white gel pen.
