Shabby Chic Graduation Card

As you can tell I love, love, love owls!

Graduation owl card

For this card I used

  • 8″x 8″ white Scalloped card blank
  • Free papers from Debbi Moore Bringing Inspiration To You Issue 24
  • Foam pads
  • Double sided tape
  • Glossy Accents
  • Fake Kraft card (A4 Brown Folder)
  • Clevercut 5 in 1 Trimmer


  1. Cut kraft card so that it fits to the blank leaving an even border.
  2. Trim the free brown polka dot paper to size leaving a narrow border and affix to the kraft card using double sided tape.
  3. To make decorative strip, cut kraft card to fit flush with the length of the first kraft card layer and about 2 inches wide as shown. Cover this strip with the blue flower paper so that it leaves a border on the right and left sides. Attach to the left hand side of card as pictured.
  4. Cut out the ribbon strip from the papers and fix to the bottom of card using double sided tape.
  5. Cut out the owl topper and fix half on the decoratve strip and half off using foam pads.
  6. Fix the “Have a hoot” sentiment to the bottom right of card as shown using foam pads.
  7. Finish the card by applying Glossy Accents to the owls eyes.

Thanks for looking at this card, as you know I do love freebies and these are some of the best quality free papers I have come across in my few short years of crafting. I love how all these papers co-ordinate with each other and this makes making lovely cards easy. Thank you Debbi Moore and team.

More cards coming soon.

Thanks Lynne
