It's almost time for the end of the school year...here in Florida, at least. My kiddos' last day of school is next Thursday. Today's project comes to us from Alicia Tomicich-Wiley. It is just in time for graduations here. My youngest is "graduating" from elementary school. :)
I had a customer request that we make a graduation card at my Stamp-A-Stack this month. I don't have any graduation specific stamp sets, so I needed to come up with something using what I do have. I wanted to make sure I used all SU! products, although one used is retired. I have seen cards making a square into a graduation cap but most used embroidery floss for the tassle. I decided to use grosgrain ribbon and fray it. Although I have seen frayed ribbon used before, I haven't seen it used this way. My customers were impressed with how it was made, as was I when it all worked out. :)
