Birthday Owl

Lisa Henderson


Welcome back!

Today I have one last card to share using the Check You Out stampset!  This one is simple, but I like it.  Sometimes simple is good!


To make this card:

1.  Start with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Smoky Slate card base.  Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Highland Heather cardstock.  Stamp the background in Highland Heather using the Buffalo Check stampset.  Adhere to the card base.

2.  Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Stamp the books in Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana.  Adhere to the card base.

3.  Stamp the owl in Smoky Slate on Whisper White cardstock.  Fussy cut the owl.  Adhere to the stamped piece using dimensionals.

4.  Stamp the happy birthday in memento ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  Punch using the 1" circle punch.  Punch the Coastal Cabana cardstock using the  1 1/8" scalloped circle punch.  Adhere the sentiment to the scalloped circle.  Adhere to the card base using dimensionals.

5.  Add the purple rhinestones to the card.
