I am a wife to Steve, a mother to three beautiful daughters and I have a full-time stamp at home business as a demonstrator with Stampin'Up. Making cards, scrapbook pages and 3-D items with quality products from Stampin'Up has become my passion and I would love to share this joy with you! Join me at one of my Stamping to Share events, or be a hostess for a Stampin'Up workshop and let's have some stampin' fun!! If you don't know the first thing about stamping, don't worry . . . I can teach you how and it won't be long before you, too, are stamping to share!
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!
