Graduation Cap Card

It's graduation season, and I've been working on a few different graduation cards recently. This set of 3 graduation cards uses a cut file I purchased in the Silhouette Design Store. I chose green and white card stock since those are the school colors for the 3 graduates to whom I'll be giving these cards. I cut all the pieces for the card base, mat, and cap/tassel using my Silhouette Cameo 4. After sizing up the digi stamp, I did a print and cut of the Gerda Steiner Designs graduation owl for each card and colored the owls using my Ohuhu Honolulu alcohol markers. I die cut the word "Congrats" using a Hero Arts stamp and die set and stamped the "on your graduation" words from the same set.
