This Memorial Day weekend we are celebrating a couple of graduates that we know! This week I decided to make a couple of cards. One card is for a male graduate and the other is for a female graduate. I have been able to use more of my scraps lately, because they are all nicely organized by color. Eventually, I may have to post a few pictures of my new craft room, but that will be another post. For today we will talk about my Hoot Hoot Graduation Cards. To make them I used two different cartridges: Just Because Cards and Everyday Paper Dolls. I cut out the owl from Just Because Cards and the graduation cap and tassle from Everyday Paper Dolls. I used some designer series paper on each card to add a little oomph, some ribbon or twine for texture, and Stickles to make the graduation caps extra special. I also glossed up the owl's beak and used my Tim Holtz distress pads to give my owls some character. I think the cards turned out to be a ....hoot! Okay, I couldn't resist that one. These cards are also being used for the CAS-ual Friday challenge for a masculine card using designer series paper and the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge asking for a "You Did It!" card.
