Box of Owls

Hello Rubber Cafe' Fans!

Kristine here today with my first card that I made with the November Kit of the Month Club from, The Rubber Cafe'.   
This month's kit called Love Makes You a Family!  

The kit includes Echo Park's 6x6 pad- The Story of Our Family by Designer Lori Whitlock, and tons of amazing ribbons and mini Distress Inks!  

For today I used the stamps from the Creative Cafe' Kit.
The Family Tree stamp set is full of adorable owls.

So....I created a Box full of Owls!

To create this card start with a 9" x 5 1/2" panel of cardstock.
Use a Scor-pal to score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8" and 8 1/2".

Turn the panel a quarter turn and then score at 2 3/4" stopping before the final section.

Cut as shown in the picture below.

Fold on the score lines to create the box.

Cut patterned paper pieces.
6 pieces that are 1 7/8" x 2 1/2" and one piece that is 1 7/8" x 5 1/4"

Adhere the patterned paper pieces to the box with Scrap Happy Glue.

Cut two pieces of cardstock 3 1/8" x 2 1/4".
Score on each end at 1/2".

Fold on the score lines and add Scrap Happy Glue.

Slide the panels into the box so that the glued parts are on the side of the box.

Cut three white panels measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/8".
Stamp the Owl Houses on two of the panels and color with colored pencils.
Sponge the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink and then adhere to the side flaps of the box with Scrap Happy Glue.

On the third panel stamp the sentiment and the leaves.
Color the leaves with a green colored pencil and sponge the edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

Stamp the owls and the branch on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and color with pencils.
Cut out the images.

Adhere the branch and the family of owls to the back panel with Scrap Happy Glue.
Adhere the pair of owls image to a thin strip of cardstock and adhere to the back section in the box.

Adhere one of the single owls to the front section with Scrap Happy Glue.
Adhere another owl to a thin strip of cardstock and adhere to the backside of the front panel with Scrap Happy Glue.

You can add more owls if you want...just depends how big you want the family!

Here is another look at the completed card in a box.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.
