Happy Birthday Sister!!!


Supplies:

Cricut Imagine
Hoot 'n' Holler cart
Elise cart
Audrey cart
Ribbon
Mini round gems
Prima flower
Adhesive
cardstock/pattern paper
Copic marker
Cuttlebug
Cuttlebug embossing folder

It is my sister's birthday tomorrow (we are about 15 1/2 years apart) , so I thought I would make a little card for her. I wanted this card to be different than something I would normally make so I used an odd shape and mismatched the colors a bit.

Back in the 70s, I think she liked owls...so I went with it. I used my Imagine to create this card. The paper is Amy Butler double sided paperstack. The card base is from Storybook (it is not a card but I folded it in half and made it a card). The owl is from Hoot 'n' Holler. I used my Imagine to print the pattern paper (used for the owl). The pattern carts I used are Elise and Audrey. I used a CB embossing folder to negative emboss the sentiment paper. A Copic marker to color in the pupils was the way to go.

I struggled with this card a bit but I am happy with the result. I like doing things a little different...you never know what you will come up with.
