Gift Card Holder Graduation Card

Grad Owl Gift Card Holder Hello all and Happy Monday!  Ok, I've got YET another Owl Graduation Card. I LOVE this lil Owl and as I mentioned VERY addicting to make too.

ALL Supplies are the same as the Post below..colors, ink etc.  Except I used Bold Numbers set which is retired. 

Now to make the Card Hold the Gift Card I used a 12 x 12 sheet of Cardstock.  I cut it 4 1/4 x 12 then I scored it at 5 1/2 and 11.  The extra inch you will bring it up to the inside of your card and that will hold the gift card. Woo Hoo!  Love this Idea!

Also I wanted to add a HUGE Thank you to those who leave me comments..I so appreciate them and SO glad you like my cards/projects.  Thanks for visiting my Blog!

Look “Hoo’s” Graduating…

Graduation Owl Card Ok, so it's been a super long weekend and I did get LOTS done! I am really liking how this card came out! Guess what?? It's not a Side or Stair Step Card! LOL!!!  My friend Sharon has crowned me not only "Queen" of step cards but I am now the "Ambassador" per her comment on the post below. LOL!!  I Love it…Oh and yes she will be right behind me. You've got to check out her card HERE! Ok, so where was I???

Oh, yes this card was a fun one to make using Stampin' Up!'s great punches. Again I'm using my daughter's School colors.  I got this idea from our Stampin' success magazine we get every month. There was the cute lil "Owl" staring at me ; ) it was created by Lyssa Zwolanek. Be on the look out for more of this little guy as He is very addicting to make. Next time I make him his feet are going to be either Only Orange or Pumpkin pie. I think the Tango Tangerine is too Orangey? Or is it just me? Hmmm!!!!
