This month’s Karen Burniston Designer challenge is to dressed up some characters! I’m starting out with Poppy the Owl dressed up for graduation. I just love how the Pop It Ups Gift Card Holder goes with Stampin Up’s B.Y.O.P stamp set.
I chose a combo of red, white and blue to match one of our local high schools. Working backwards – I’ll now have to find a matching gift card! The border on the card comes with the Gift Card Holder die! That’s easy 🙂
Poppy’s graduation cap is a small square with a Basic Black Candy dot in the center. The tassel cord was cut free-hand and the the red tassel is a small piece of Real Red with some slits cut into it, rolled up. The diploma is a scrap of Whisper White, rolled and tied with Baker’s Twine.
To make the star, punch 3 star. Hold 2 of them together and cut a sliver out of the center of both at the same time. Remove the center and alternate the colors.
Hope over to Karen’s Facebook page to see the other characters decked out in their finest! Hugs, Fran
