For today I have a card to share with you that I created. This month I have several cards to make, from birthdays, to a Father's Day card (that's right I haven't made it yet which I need to do so I can get it in the mail), a retirement card, and a couple congratulations cards. So last night I created a birthday card for my brother. :-)
When I was making this card I thought to myself whose bright idea was it to have to many darn kids, lol! You will see what I am talking about. So I found this card at June's blog, Simply Elegant Paper Crafts, she won at Fantabulous Cricut for this card. The original source was over at DarleneDesign.com, she has a wonderful tutorial on how to make this card as well as PDF instructions with the measurements. Anywho, here is my card:
So if you have seen this card either at June's blog or Darlene's blog you would see there was only a place for either 3 or 4 owls (she has two styles of cards) but because there are 6 of us (thus my cursing about having so many kids, lol, not really cursing at all, lol) I had to alter the card a bit to fit my family (of owls).
I fussy cut the owls from Jillibean Soup's Spotted Owl Soup collection. The stamp set I used for the "Happy Birthday Bro" is from Practicing Creativity Design. I hand wrote "from all of us".
When I get home from Nicki's graduation I did want to add one more thing to the front of the card, the owls on the paper had balloons, I want to add some to the owl on the front of the card. I think that will look cute. :-)
This card was a little time consuming but SUPER fun! I will be making more in my future. :-)
Thank you June and Darlene for the wonderful inspiration. :-)
That's all for now! Off to Nicki's graduation.
