Hello there! I have a couple of graduation cards I want to share with you before I get them in the mail. I think I found the idea for these on the SU! site. I had a graduation from BHS, so I started with a Perfect Plum base and used Going Grey with it for their high school colors. The other card was for New London so I used a Crushed Curry base and Basic Black.
I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and drew a light line with a pencil to keep the numbers straight. I I laid the numbers from the Large Numbers Framelits on the line and ran them through the Big Shot. I put Dimensionals on the back of the white cardstock and attached a piece of Basic Grey Cardstock to the Plum and a piece of Basic Black to the Curry. I stamped the sentiment with the retired Crazy About You set in Basic Grey & Basic Black inks. I attached them with Dimensional pieces.
For the caps I cut a 1" square from Basic Grey & Basic Black Cardstock. I used the retired mini tassels from the Occasions Catalog and died the tassels. I added several drops of reinker to an empty embellishments container and added a little water. I dipped the tassels in the mixture, patted them dry, and repeated the process a few times. I used Perfect Plum for one and Crushed Curry for the other. There's a Mini Tassels Assortment in the new catalog in Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide & gold metallic. You may have luck dying those or you could make your own following Pinterest using baker's twine in the needed colors.
I attached the caps with Dimensionals and snipped off most of the metal ring on the tassels. I attached the tassel to the center of the cap with a Glue Dot. I used a retired handheld circle punch for the center and attached it with another Glue Dot. I added the stars from the Regals Enamel Shapes. I got the checks inside but need to run to the post office to see if I need extra postage for the thickness of the caps. Hopefully they'll get out today:) Thanks so much for stopping by!
