Graduation Card

Happy Friday and start of Memorial Day weekend!  We have a lot planned for this weekend, and I'm looking forward to it all!

I had a bit of time this evening to get a card created.  One of my cousins is graduating from high school in a few weeks, so I went ahead and got a card made for her.  I decided to make a shaped card and used my Gypsy to weld two hats together.  Earlier today I saw a post  on the Cricut Circle blog about using twine to fill in shapes on your project.  I knew I wanted to decorate the tassel of the hat somehow, and I wanted it to be in my cousin's school colors (black and gold).  Well, when I saw that post this morning, I decided to give it a try.  It was very easy - I ran the tassel through my Xyron upside down, the put the twine on the adhesive, starting by going around the outside of the image and working my way in.  I like the dimension that it gave.

I'm going to submit this card into the challenges at Fantabulous Cricut and Celebrate the Occasion, both of which are hosting Graduation-themed challenges this week.  Thanks for coming by and have a fabulous weekend!
