Today's Technique Challenge at Splitcoaststampers gave me a chance to add another card to the Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge today! The background was created by running a sheet of wax paper through the Cuttlebug using the Congratulations embossing folder. The paper was then ironed onto a sheet of glossy white paper and brayed with Real Red ink by Stampin' Up.
I stamped the mortar board with Basic Gray and Memento Tuxedo Black. The tassel was created by wrapping black DMC floss around a fork and knotting. I cut out the hat, wrapped the end of the tassel around a brad in the center of the hat, and attached it to the card front with dimensionals.
