punch owl graduation card

Good Saturday morning everyone! I got to sleep in a little...yay! Now, I'm going to post this card, exercise and get started on my day. Smile

I just wanted to share this cute little punch owl graduation card that we made at stamp club on Wednesday night. I must say right off that this was not my idea. One of the great things about being a SU! demo is that you get a monthly magazine called Stampin' Success and it has all sorts of neat ideas in it...including this fun punch owl. The sample used different colors and a different focal stamp (a grad stamp) but I made it work with what I have and my ladies seemed to enjoy it. You can see the card I copied HERE.

This owl takes about seven different punches to put together. If you click on the link above you'll see the entire listing of punches. I, however, used the Celebrate stamp from the Under $10 page in the back of the IB&C. I figure in the offset part you could add someone's name or the year graduating or just leave it blank. Over all a super cute card...I think!

Alright...I'm off. We are supposed to have super nice temperatures today so I would like to get outside and weed a little. We are going to grill steak for dinner tonight too so I need to run to the store to get a couple of things so...have a super day everyone!
