Congratulations Graduate!

This week the girls will be making a graduation card. I found this cute little owl made a few different times and thought he was so cute I wanted to try it out. Hope you like it!

Here's how I made it:

Started with base piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock (5.5x4.25). Next came Creamy Caramel Cardstock (5.25x4). Before layering this onto the Chocolate Chip Cardstock I rolled the Classic Stars Jumbo Roller with Creamy Caramel. Next I cut a piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock (3.5x1). Whisper White Cardstock (3.25x.75) and stamped "contratulations" from the Stampin' UP! Sale-A-Brations stamp set called Congrats.

To Make the Owl:
1 - 1-3/4" Circle (body)
1 - Scalloped Circle, cut in half (wings)
1 - Tab Punch (head) Close to Cocoa Cardstock
2 - 1/2" Circle (Eyes) Whisper White
2 - 1/4" Circle (Eyes) Basic Black
1 - tip of the Large Star Punch (beak) So Saffron
1 - tip of the Small Tag Punch (bottom of hat) Basic Black
1 - 1.5x.25 Piece of Basic Black Cardstock (top of hat)

The tassel is a piece of Basic Black 1/4" Grossgrain Ribbon...tie a know & shred the bottop and attach to the back and flip over the front of the hat.
