4/24 Graduation Punch Art

I love this cute owl on a graduation card. I borrowed heavily from Sue McNeil. You can see her graduation owl card HERE. It's quick and easy to put together . . . which is why my customers will love making this at my Graduation Card Class next week. The hardest part is free-hand cutting the mortar board! You want a bit of a kite shape. I didn't want to fuss with a tassel or a diploma, but it certainly wouldn't be that hard to add one if you want to. I made a 6x6 cheat sheet to help my customers create the owl and thought I would share it here with you as well.

The inside of my card has a cute saying in it from the stamp set Full of Life. Of course this is optional . . . but I thought it went well with the wide-eyed look of the owl! lol!
Here are the Stampin'Up supplies you will need to recreate this card:

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Full of Life
Paper: Read Red, Whisper White, More Mustard, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Tools: Big Shot Machine, Scallop Oval Frame Die, Word Window Punch, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch (SU no longer carries this but a standard hold punch at your office supply store works just as well)
Accessories: Vintage Brads
