Graduation Owl & Cap Shaped Card with Free Cutting File

Hello there!  With May comes thoughts of graduation so I thought I would share a couple of fun shaped cards perfect for any graduates you may know!  :)

My first card is very near and dear to my heart.  I personally designed this cutting file for an issue of Paper Crafts magazine that ended up being cancelled when the magazine folded.  I had never challenged myself to create a file from scratch so it felt like a huge accomplishment for me and I'm very happy with how he turned out.  Make sure to keep reading for a little treat I have for you down below.  ;)

My second card uses THIS cutting file which I altered to include an extra layer for a more 3D look.  For an extra touch of realism I created handmade tassles from solid twine and attached them with brads on both of my cards.  For those of you who missed it, I previously shared a video showing my secrets to shaped cards HERE.

As a special thank you to all my sweet followers I am providing a free Silhouette cut file for this fun owl card (available to download HERE).  I hope you enjoy him as much I enjoyed creating him.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  :)
