Graduation Cards

So we had a few of our friends and family graduating high school this year. Wow. I graduated high school with one of the mommies. :/
I made up some graduation cards and I had to get some use out of my craft room and these adorable stamp sets.
I used Papertreys "Wise Owl" set and a few different Stampin' Up! sets for the wording.

Let's see if I remember everything...
For the Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White.
Inks: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Only Orange, Close to Cocoa, and Basic Black.
I used a scallop and circle punch from SU!
A Little Leaves SU! Sizzlets die cut for the tree branch from SU! and my Big Shot machine.
To create the bark on the tree I spritzed some Close to Cocoa with water, crumpled it, uncrumpled it, let it dry and then rubbed chocolate chip ink (direct to paper) from the ink pad.
I used my Colluzle to make my bigger circle so the word selection could change as you rotated the large white circle.
I've always wanted to make one of these rotating sayings cards and let me tell you it took a bit of time to play with it and get it just right. I went thru a few large white discs getting the words just right (upside down, wrong position, etc) but I really like the finished cards and hope you will too!
