A Wise Valentine Owl - DIC134
Hello all!!! The UDI Blog Inspiration challenge this week is a fun and flirty pic in reds and pinks. Just in time for Valentine's Day!! Are you ready?
I have to confess actually. The basic components of this card were sitting on my craft table, leftovers from a previous class. A Christmas class to be exact, but I thought it would make for a nice Valentine card. I think it turned out just fine!
The card base Blushing Bride, layered with Real Red, CandyCane dsp and striped Shimmery White. Some of these items are retired, but just goes to show how some dsp can be used for other holidays too! The big button is from the 2010 Holiday mini and I soooo hope they show up in the new catalog this year!!
As I'm still lovin' this owl punch and stamp set, I had to use him! The owl is from the SAB set Punch Bunch and punched with the 2 step owl punch. So much fun. The owls "chest cover" was stamped separately in Real Red on Whisper White. The small heart is in Blushing Bride, popped up with a tiny dimensional and topped off with a rhinestone. The pinking hearts border punch was used on the back of the card base. A 1/4" is cut off the front so it shows through.
If you have a chance, check out the UDI Blog and play along!!
