Tassel

Hello, everyone.  Something a little different for me today!  I saw a fun Totally Tassel challenge over at Curtain Call and decided to join in. This is my first time playing there!  I had some tassels in my stash that I found at a thrift store many years ago and this is the first time I've used one of them.


I heat-embossed a gold design along the left edge of burgundy cardstock and another gold design on the graduation cap. These background stamps are unmarked/unknown but I've had them for many years. I added layers of black, gold, and cream cardstock under the cap, along with a torn piece of handmade cream-coloured paper, and also added the tassel.  I stamped the sentiment in black, which says Double Happiness.

Here is the graphic for the Curtain Call challenge:



I would also like to support these 5 challenges:
Craftin' Desert Divas Graduation UE
Fan-Tastic Tuesday AG No Patterned Paper UE
Fashionable Stamping Old Favourites (the forgotten favourites are the background stamps)
Mod Squad Mix It Up (the sentiment stamp is from an Asian set and the background stamps are unmarked/unknown)
One Crazy Stamper May AG 1/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

  3. How can you have intact tassels?? I thought you had cats?! Mine are notorious tassel killers. I'm glad that yours are better controlled, otherwise we couldn't have seen this awesome card.
