Two more Grad cards

Today I'm posting a couple of grad cards I made for friends of Jer's that just graduated from university.  The first one is for Heather (my stamping friend), who just graduated with a degree in Atmospheric Science --- I hope I got that right! ... so that's why the owl is holding an umbrella :)

"Congratulations Heather!"

Stamp:  Love & Laughter (SU!)
Paper:  Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, More Mustard, Bashful Blue, Daffodil Delight polka-dot DP, Bashful Blue polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Sahara Sand (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  2-part owl punch, scalloped oval punch, sponge, mini More Mustard brads, Lemondrop Twine (The Twinery), Big Shot, Umbrella die-cut (Memory Box), glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

Punched out the owl, sponged the Sahara Sand pieces, and glued everything together.  Hand cut the cap and added a mini brad and twine.

Mounted all the pieces, popping up the umbrella and congrat banner with dimensionals.


The second grad card is for Scott (my computer techie, who has helped me SO much with my blog).  Scott just graduated with a degree in Computer Science.

"Congratulations Scott!"

Stamp:  Outlined Occassions (SU!); grad cap (unknown)
Paper:  white cardstock, basic black (SU!)
Ink:  StazOn Black, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  adhesives

I stamped the sentiment in StazOn black and colored it in with Stampin' Write markers.   Stamped a grad cap on the "C" in basic black.  Mounted the panel onto a larger panel of Basic Black cardstock and then mounted onto the card base.  Easy and fun CAS card!
