Owlin’ Good Birthday

It’s my Dad’s Birthday today!Happy Birthday DAD! I KNOW you check my blog out from time to time 🙂

I had fun making him this suitably masculine card featuring the Autumn Spice Coverweight DSP in the current mini (luvin’ it!), and of course the ever versatile owl punch:

I got my idea of adding wings to the owl from Kerry Bunting who truly is the queen of owls (check her myriad of ideas with the owl punch!)  How simple is it to use the scallop circle for cute little wings? I like folding one wing down for a bit of attitude or a wave hello – cute!

My sentiment is from a favourite stamp set “on your birthday” which just has the perfect birthday sentiment for every age group.

How cute is the Decorative Label Punch I’ve used to “house” my sentiment? Check it out here in the Current Mini Catalogue – See how I’ve punched again in Cajun Craze and snipped each edge off, placing around the label as a shadow? Effective isn’t it?

Now I know it’s a male card – but didn’t you know I shimmer EVERYTHING these days? Check this out!

Have you tried Stampin’ Up!’s square envelopes? They accomodate a 13.5 x 13.5 card – I am lovin’ square cards at the mo!

Hope you enjoyed this project and maybe I have even inspired you to have  a play with craft this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
