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!

Grad Owl Gift Card Holder Inside Now back to stampin', my son is at Grandma's house so I need to take advantage. LOL!!! But if you have any questions please don't hesitate to comment, call or email me.

Happy Stampin',

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!!!!

Supplies used: All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamp Set: Great Grads
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Going Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, So saffron (beak), Tango Tangerine (feet), Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray
Accessories: Grograin Ribbon, SU Punches – Scallop, 1 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 (retired) circle punches, Small Tag, Boho Blossoms (feet), 5-petal Flower (beak), Round Tab & word window, Dimensionals

Ok, I think that's it. Back to more stampin!
