Happiness is a handmade card



Owl birthday card using My Favorite Things

Hi everyone, I'm over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with an owl birthday card using My Favorite Things. As soon as I saw the new set I'm Owl Yours, I had to have it! I'm always doodling owls, and these are so cute and will be perfect every time!

I inked some card creating an ombre pink effect, and then used the Moroccan Lattice stencil to add deep pink shading. I then used the Diagonal Sentiment Strip Cover Up Dienamics to cut a panel.

Using the I'm Owl Yours stamp set and the matching Dienamics, I stamped, coloured with alcohol markers and cut an owl and two sizes of heart, using a white pen to add highlight detail.

I cut numerous leaves using Wild Greenery and coloured them in two-tone shading with alcohol markers. 

I then stamped and heat embossed in white a sentiment from I'm Owl Yours onto black card.

Finally, I added the panel to a card base and layered everything up until I was happy with the layout, then adhered the elements down using a mix of foam pads, wet glue and silicon glue for dimension.

That's it for today, and I hope you're inspired to take a look at those gorgeous little owls - perfect for birthdays, Valentines, anniversaries and thank you cards!

Thanks for stopping by!
