Whooo's the Grad? HSSCSC#69


It's that time of year again... Graduation's are among us! I decide to make a few simple generic graduation cards and here is one of them.

Really this card is pretty simple. I started by sponging the clouds using Bashful Blue ink on Whisper White card stock, then I used the Two step bird punch and punched out the leaves and glued them to the Whisper White piece.

Next I die the the Early Espresso letters using the Big Shot and the Timeless Type Alphabet after I stamped them using the Wood Grain background stamp, glued them on and then made the owl using the Owl punch and put him on the card using Dimensionals.

The inside is stamped with a simple "congratulations" sentiment.

There it is...a pretty simple and cute graduation card and it just happens to fit with the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week to Paper Piece! Go check out their site! :)
