I've seen several versions of this graduation owl online now, and figured since I needed a couple of cards for soon-to-be high school graduates, I'd try my hand at it. This card is for our friend's daughter, and the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight are her school colors (well, purple and gold).
This is what my desk looked like while creating the cards. I had pre-punched a bunch of pieces for my ladies at their Card Club Monday. I'm only showing you my desk because it's for Julia's weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) over at the Stamping Ground. This card uses four punches, an embossing folder for the Big Shot, two kinds of Rich Razzleberry ribbon, rhinestones (clear and black), and Newsprint dsp. I freehand cut the cap.
I don't get tired of looking at this cute little owl. It's been sponged around. I punched the feet out with the Owl Punch in More Mustard card stock, and used a punched Basic Gray oval scallop for the wings (cutting the top almost half off). I hand cut the beak, and added black gems for the eyes. The diploma is a 1" x 1-1/2" piece of your basic bond paper. It's adhered to the owl with a mini glue dot.
Hey! Before I forget, A La Card Monkey is nearing 300 Followers! I've provided some awesome blog candy.
