I seem to be running on a theme of owls and leaves. This card was actually the first of the run, the second one here. It’s interesting to see the different styles of card that can be made with similar supplies.
The leaves were stamped onto two separate pieces of green card. One for the inside back the other for the front. The owls were stamped onto some scrap white card. They were all coloured with alcohol markers and cut out.
The alcohol markers did seep through to the pack of the card so I cut out a small square of pale green paper and adhered it to the back covering up the staining and giving me some where to write a small message.
I cut a circle out of another piece of green card for the aperture at the front and made a shallow box shape. The box had concertina sides to enable it to fold flat and fit inside an envelope. This makes it easier to post.
I stamped Happy Birthday onto a scrap of paper that had some sort of wood grain effect on it, cut it out with a small die and hung it with some thread from one of the leaves as everything was glued into place.
Thats all for now, till next time have fun x
