Hey, love this card. I took this black card stock and then embossed the outer layer with gold embossing powder and using a Stampin up word background stamp. I then took this distressed paper/paper and then inked it up and layered it on top. I then took this grad image and used an embossing pen and gold embossing powder to emboss the tassel off the hat. I then layered the mat. I printed this sentiment and then layered that mat. I put 4 gold brads into the paper/paper and attached it to the black embossed card stock. Lastly I adhered the whole piece to this kraft card base, added a button with a twine bow and it was done!
