She's a Free Bird!

Last weekend we attended a graduation party for a young lady at our church and this was the card I made for her.  I used the same Penny Black stamp set "For the Grad" that I used on my son's card.  If you missed his graduation card, you can see it HERE.

 I love this Penny Black image because it is so simple and easy to use:  no coloring involved!  Just stamp and go!

Because my card was for a girl, I added some feminine elements by using the retired Stampin Up! flower branch image from the 'Thoughts and Prayers' set.  I simply stamped all the images directly onto designer paper by Bo Bunny (The Gabrielle Collection).  Then I added Stitckles to all the flower centers.

The card base is Bravo Burgundy.  The inside of the cards reads 'Your Free!'.

Have a great day!  Amy


  1. A great card Amy. Love how you combined the SU set with the fun graduation set. I am not normally a huge fan of bird cages, because most of the time the bird is inside the cage, but this set by Penny Black is so clever and perfect for graduation.

  2. What a cool concept for a graduation card!! It turned out beautifully and I love the colors you chose, especially for the flowers!
