Owl Be Your Friend

Whoooooo is loving this new Creative Cafe' KOTM?  These little owls are adorable!  This set is great for everyday cards like this simple friendship card:

Base:  5&1/2" by 4&1/4" dark blue cardstock

First Layer: 4" by 3&1/2" peach doodle patterned paper.  Use the awesome pen in your kit to add some fun faux stitching:

Next cut a 4" by 2" piece of floral patterned paper.  Glue the peach doodle to the bottom and floral to the top of the card base using Scrap Happy Glue.

Center Strip:  cut a 4" by 1" strip of aqua diamond patterned paper, and mat it on a 4" by 1&1/4" piece of dark blue cardstock.  Add a strip of yellow seam binding ribbon around this and glue the center strip down about 1&1/2" from the top of the floral paper.

Stamp sentiment using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink (it's in your kit!!!) on white cardstock--and here, a QUICK TIP: stamp into Versamark ink first, stamp off on scrap paper, then ink up using the Peacock Feathers helps this water based ink adhere to the stamp really well and give you a perfect image!  I punched the sentiment out using a 1" circle punch, then brushed the edges of the circle with the Antique Linen Distress Ink (more kit goodies!) and then matted it onto a 1&1/4" circle of aqua cardstock.  Punch a hole at the top and string on a piece of seam binding ribbon, then tie it in a bow onto the strip of ribbon on the center strip.

Stamp the owls in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, color with markers, then fussy cut out.

Cut a 2" by 1&1/2" piece of wood grain patterned paper, and mat it onto a 2&1/4" by 1&3/4" piece of dark blue cardstock.  Foam tape the owls to this piece, then glue to the top right corner of the card using Scrap Happy Glue.
