Adorable Owls, Go To Greetings, Just a Note Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! I'm happy you could make it here to see today's "just a note" card!  I thought I would make a card today using the "Adorable Owls" set since it will be retiring at the end of the month.  It's been a fun set to play with.  I did find this card on Pinterest but I didn't have much luck finding the measurements so I guessed and I'll share those measurements with you. You can see the original card here

I just love the colors of this card.  And here's how I made it.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Fresh Freesia card stock. This card opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the next layer.

Then I die cut the panels. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Dandy Designs" 12" x 12" package. There's lots of sheets in that package and it was free during Sale-a-Brations (that is done at the end of the month). The panels were die cut using the largest stitched rectangle in the set of 4 dies from the "Rectangle Stitched" frameits set. I did find it a bit of a challenge to get those three pieces taped evenly across the Basic White piece and the top and bottom are a bit wider than the sides. Once the panels were taped to the Basic White piece, I taped a 6.5" piece of ribbon to the back of the layers. Then I taped that to the front of the card base.

The words are from the "Go To Greetings" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them using the 2-7/16" die from the "Layering Circles" die set. I made sure the words were towards the bottom of the circle. Then I die cut a scalloped Fresh Freesia circle using a die a bit larger from the same set. I taped the two circles together and added Dimensionals on the back. Then I set it in place on the front of the card, centering it as much as I could eying it.

The owl is from the "Adorable Owls" set and I fussy cut it out. Then I colored it using light Crumb Cake and light Pumpkin Pie Blends Pens. I didn't have the Fresh Freesia one so I used my Blender pen and the Fresh Freesia ink pen. I set the owl in place using Dimensionals.

A Fresh Freesia bow was tied and glued in place. I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock to the inside and the card was done.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's note card,

Pretty combination of the dsp patterns. Very cute owl flying from your house to someone's mailbox.
