Quick Crafting Tip - How to Create a Tassel

There's no better way to commend a graduate for their tenacity and hard work than with a hand stamped card!  If you tuck a few bucks inside, it's even better, right?  ((wink)) 

Today's quick tip video will teach you how to make a tassel - perfect for graduation cards - or any card. Tassels are really popular right now. I've included cutting  I've also included a picture tutorial on how to make the graduation cap that's featured on this card. Be sure to scroll down so you don't miss it.

Beautiful You Bride

My nephew is getting married on May 20th so I'm in "wedding mode".  That's evident in today's project.   

This card features my favorite stamp set in the Occasions Catalog - Beautiful You.  Every time I think I've come up with my last idea using this set, I think of another.  

The designer paper I used on this card, Falling in Love, was on the retired list.  I say "was" because it has sold out.  Remember, accessories are only available while supplies last so if you see something you like be sure to purchase it before it's gone.  

You can see all the retiring product by clicking HERE or on the image below. Don't forget, too, your online product order of $25 entitles you to free REWARDS.  Orders of $50 include a free product gift, too. Read all about my REWARDS program HERE.

The Blushing Bride Sequin Trim, Jet Black StazOn ink pad and the Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon, all used on this card, are retiring.  Hurry though - retiring accessories are only available while supplies last!
