My Paper World's sketch #9 contest: Amanda's graduation 2008


Hi. I just made this card today for my niece, Amanda. She is graduating from High School in a couple of weeks in TN. I wanted to make her a card using her school colors which are maroon and grey. I used CHF stamps for this card. The owl, branch, grad cap, and saying are all from the set called "U R A Hoot". I love this set. It is so cute. It has tons of greetings and accessories to go with the owls. The bottom rectangle is also a CHF stamp. It is their paisley backgrounder. I stamped it with burgundy ink on grey DP. The branch was stamped on the base white square. The owl was stamped on grey cardstock and cut out. The grad cap was stamped with Versamark and embossed with black ep. I cut it out and mounted it to the owl with dimensionals. The upper DP is from Club Scrap. The silver grad caps were punched out of silver cardstock. Inside the card I used the greeting also from the owl set. It says "Hoot and hollar, You're a scholar!" CUTE!
