Owl Birthday Card

It’s a dear friend’s birthday today, and I made a card that included one of her favourite things – owls!

I started off my sponging colour through a Stampin’ Up! stencil. I used two colours – Crisp Cantaloupe, and Summer Sun. The circle is also Crisp Cantaloupe, which I embossed using the large dots embossing folder.

The owl and greeting is from Gina K Designs. (I’ve had it for many years, and don’t know if it’s still available.)

I hand drew the branch, as I didn’t want the owl hanging in mid-air. The balloons, owl and branch were coloured with Copics, but I drew in the strings and they didn’t survive me cutting it all out.

Here is the inside:

The ironic thing about this, is my friend Marcelle, is the one who showed me a video to learn how to make pop up cards. (I’ve added it below.)

  1. I love that little owl image but the fact that the card is a pop up really made me smile. So cool!

  2. Thanks Verna. It’s a sweet little owl. The pop up is so easy, but makes a huge difference!
