Amazing Owls, Artistically Inked, Friendship Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello. I am glad you're here to see today's fun card. I found it on Pinterest and thought I'd make one. I am going to miss this set. The three owls in it were SO darn cute! I have made quite a few cards using the set so I have to look at it as I did get plenty of use out of it. So here's where you can see the original card and you can see how I made it. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

The panel on the left was cut as follows. The Balmy Blue piece measures 5-1/2" x 2-1/4" and the Basic White card stock was cut at 5-1/4" x 2" and textures using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued the textured piece to the Balmy Blue piece and then I taped the two layers in place on the front of the card. I lined up the top, bottom and left side as equally as possible.

Next I cut the square pieces at 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" for the Balmy Blue piece and 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" for the Designer Series Paper (DSP). The DSP is from the "Dandy Designs" 12" x 12" package. I taped the two squares together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. The right edge of the square piece is about 1/4" from the edge of the card base and about 1/2" down from the top.

The owl from the "Amazing Owls" set was stamped on a piece of Basic White card stock and die cut using the 2-1/8" circle die from the "Layering Circles" die set. And a Balmy Blue scalloped circle was die cut using the 2-9/16" circle die from the same set. 

Blends pens were used to color in the owl. I used the light Crumb Cake for the body. I was going to use the dark one for the highlights but chose to use the other end of the pen. I have found that the writing side seems to color a bit darker. The beak and feet are colored in using the dark Petal Pink pen and the eyes are the light Balmy Blue pen. I added Dimensionals to the back of the own instead of the back of the Balmy Blue piece. Either way looks fine but I think the Dimensionals on the back of the Balmy Blue piece would look a bit better.

The words are from the "Artistically Inked" set using black Memento ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut it using the second to the smallest stitched circle die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I set the piece in pace with a Dimensional at the bottom and a bit of mono glue on the top.  And that was it, the card was done.

Isn't it cute? I love the DSP, the colors in it are so pleasing to the eye. I have SO much of that paper left and it expires at the end of the month too. It was a Sale-a-Bration item. It's heading off to the mail box in a couple of days. Every month I send a card to a friend and I think she would really like to receive this one. So I'll be setting it aside for her.

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