Marie and Dan's engagement party is less than 2 weeks away. Making the invitations and decorations was easy. Preparing the food will take time, but won't be hard to do. The hard part was deciding what to serve. I have finally settled on the menu and can take a break.
What did I do on my break? Well, I made some cards, of course! I decided to create a few cards with an owl theme.
I used a small Spellbinder's Nestability owl die to create the owls. I added wiggly eyes to all of the owls. I used a Hero Arts woodblock stamp to create the sentiment on all of the cards.
The branch was created with a stamp from PaperTrey Ink's "Take a Bough" clear stamp set. I paper punched the leaves.
I did not create the background on this card. I used a piece of patterned paper from Paper House's "Country Paper Pix" paper pad.
If you saw the fox cards I posted about a week ago, you'll realize that this card is very similar to some of them. It's funny, but even though I have used my Darice "Wood grain" embossing folder many times, it wasn't until today that I realized the folder debosses instead of embosses. If I put the paper in backwards I can get an embossed look, but I didn't make the observation until I finished my cards for today. Debossing still adds texture to the cards, but I prefer the look and feel of embossing.
That's it for today.
Have a good night!
