So Happy Owl Card

I have a monthly card class for some of the ladies that work at Kennesaw State University.  The school mascot is an owl so its fun to have owl themed cards as part of their class.  In the new Stampin’ Up! catalog is a set called So Very Happy and it has a cute little owl in it.  This month we made a card with that set –

The idea for this card came from I swap I received from my friend Connie Babbert.  I made a few changes – different colors, Designer paper, ribbon and punch topper.   The designer paper that I used is the Lullaby paper – which is a “baby” paper but doesn’t have any baby images so you can use it for other things.  One side is the “blue” side and the other is the “pink” side of the designer paper.  I have another card to share later that is a baby card and with this paper I could easily use the same card design and make it either boy or girl by flipping the paper over.  For this card I used the “blue” side – so the colors include Coastal Cabana, Hello Honey, Pistachio Pudding and the Baked Brown Sugar.

One of my favorite parts is the thick baker’s twine – I used three colors of twine and pulled them trough the top of the two tags.  Then tied the little knots in the end to keep them from fraying.

Enjoy your day!
