I used the Locker Talk cartridge and cut the grad cap at 2.25" with a white shadow. I used the D'vine swirls embossing folder. the card is 4.25x5.5". The gray mat is 4x5.25". The inside mat is 4x5.25 for blue and 3x4.25 for white. I faux stitched the grad cap, sentiment and white mat on the inside.
