Using up Scraps: Grad Card

Tomorrow is Memorial Day in the States, and that means...it's time to gear up for graduation party season.  So, I'm just making a quick post today to share a cute graduation card idea featuring a scholarly owl.  Owls were pretty trendy not so long ago, and I bet you have an owl image or two somewhere in your stash.  

Supplies: card base (Yours Truly for Archivers), light green cardstock (The Paper Company), kraft cardstock (Jillibean Soup), patterned paper (My Mind's Eye), button accent (October Afternoon), stamp (Northwoods Rubber Stamps), ink (Stewart Superior), pen (Zig).

You know those brand-identification strips that you trim off the bottom of your patterned paper?  Well, that's where I got my journaling strips.  These are plain kraft, but some brands even have a bit of pattern or some clever words that you could incorporate into your journaling.  Have fun and experiment.

Roll on summer!
