Owlie Balloons

Hi friends,

A dear friend of mine recently had a big birthday! I usually don’t make cards that refer to someone getting “older”, but this owl is just so adorable and I couldn’t resist. 🙂

The stamp and sentiment are from the Hugs, Kisses, & Birthday Wishes set from Unity Stamp Company. They also have several other sets that feature this cute little guy – I may or may not have them all. 😉 Just go to the Unity Stamp Company site and search “owl” to see them.

The finished size of my card is 5 by 7 inches. To make the card, I stamped the owlie with black ink (here’s my favorite black ink) on white card stock. I colored the image with Copic markers, trimmed it close, and rounded the corners with a punch. I layered the stamped image to orange card stock with rounded corners. I used Diamond Glaze by Judikins to add some dimension and shine to the heart balloon.

I stamped the sentiment with green ink on white card stock. To make the label, I die cut the sentiment with a scalloped oval (here’s a great set) and then trimmed it straight across on the top and the bottom. I added 3 orange gems to the piece.

I attached a printed “happy birthday” ribbon to a panel of patterned paper and then attached the paper to a white card. (My ribbon was preprinted, but you can also stamp your favorite sentiment directly onto a lot of different types of ribbon.) I attached the stamped owlie and the sentiment to the card with foam tape.

With just a change of colors, this fun little guy can also be used for Halloween like I did in this Happy Owl’oween post. I think it would also be sweet in pinks and reds for Valentine’s Day.

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
