Pure Gumption - A Grad Card

It's an exciting time of year for many a graduate.  Congratulations to all of you!

I was so happy to find a graduation stamp set in the new catalog.  I have been waiting and waiting for one with words.  Pure Gumption fills the bill with 4 sayings and this darling little cap.  This card came together quick and easy with the help of my Houndstooth Embossing Folder for texture and my 2 (retired) star punches.  Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! does not currently have a star punch or die, so I had to retrieve my trusty retired ones.

Stamps:  Pure Gumption (126315[W]; 126317[C])
Ink:  Basic Black
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper (124005)
Accessories:  Mini Brads (122941), Dimensionals (104430)
Tools:  Houndstooth Embossing Folder (123134), Large & Small Star Punches

This second one is a graduation card I made last year, before I started my blog.  I got the basic idea for this from someone else (I'm sorry, but I don't remember who), but turned out so cute, I thought it was worth sharing.

I used the owl punch, and the scallop circle punch for the wings.  The hat was hand cut.  It took some time to get him altogether, but so smart looking!
