* Happy Birthday, Dad!!! *

Written on Sunday, June 11th, 2017

   Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday. If you’ve been following me on social media, you’ve seen the owl card I made for his birthday. He has always collected owls. The card base is 3.75″ x 9″.

   I love these little owls from Dare 2B Artzy. Each owl is individual, but I didn’t make them to match anyone in my family (even though I totally could). For all the little accessories, I used 2 different stamp sets. Lawn Fawn’s Party Animals and My Favorite Things Beary Special Birthday. As always, the copic colors I used are listed lower in the post.

   I adhered the branches directly down to the card and added 1 layer of foam tape along the bottom of each owl, and 2 layers behind the upper portion. For the background, I used Distress Inks (listed below), and the MFT Cloud Stencil.

    For the inside, I pulled out 2 more stamp sets. Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes, and The Alley Way Stamps Wish Big. I also used a sentiment from the Hoot Hoot stamp set the owls are in.

   Because this is a special card, I wanted to make a matching envelope. I used the We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board to make a business sized envelope. I used the Envelope Expert by the Crafty Owl to get the size I needed. I used one of the owls I used on the card, and added a party hat to him. Then used one of the other sentiments in the set. Later, I addressed it by hand.

   My Dad LOVED it! I love that he sees the amount of work and love I put into it.
