This graduation card was for my daughter. You cannot see it in the photo but I used the Big Shot Textured Plates (large dots) for the background on the Whisper White cardstock. Since SU! does not have three different square punch sizes I cut the bottom layer with my straight cutter and then used the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 square punches for the middle and top square to create the cap. I cut along the bottom of the Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon and frayed the ribbon a little to create the tassel look.
Thanks for looking!
