I decided on a Grad card and pulled out the yet-to-be-inked Witty-Cisms stamp set.  This set was inspired by Million Sales Achiever, Lisa Fast.  It matches her wit perfectly!

Stampin' Up! Witty-Cisms card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #graduationDOstamping Tips:

  • I used scraps I had laying around for the 1" x 4-1/2" strips.  We all have that "scrap" pile, right?
  • Use the Banner Triple Punch to cut all three 1" x 4-1/2" strips of paper.  Arrange together, trims ends as desired.  
  • Before adhering to white panel, wrap Baker's Twine around right edge of strips and tie in a bow.  Then adhere to panel.
  • For the focal point - I double-stacked the Stampin' Dimensionals.  So the tassel would fit just under the edge.
  • Adhere tassel with glue dots.

This card was fun to make and I'm really happy with the way it turned out!  I'm looking forward to using more of the images from the Witty-Cisms stamp set in the near future.  It has a variety of images for a variety of occasions.  It's a keeper. 

If you like it too,  add it to your shopping bag today (and those darling Best Dressed Tassels too!

Enjoy~Dawn O
