I needed a birthday card for a male friend turning 50 and I thought this Hero Arts owl was perfect! I am a little older than 50 and I would like to think that I have gained some wisdom over the years...this little guy is here to give some wise and happy birthday wishes!
I stamped the Hero Arts newsprint owl onto PTI kraft card stock in SU black craft ink, cut out and sponged around the edges with PTI spring moss ink. I coloured the leaves with a Copic marker. The medalion at the top was made with a Memory Box die and I glued it into place, nestling in this fun Jenni Bowlin button at the same time, it sits on a sponge dimensional. The little wooden tag is one of several that I have had in my stash for a few years. They are not a craft item, but rather tags that were extra to some little wooden ducks and lambs that Smith & Hawken carried. When they closed, I was allowed to take some of them home...:)) I knew I could use them one day and I think this makes a great masculine tag. The 0 is a sparkly sticker and the 5 is something that I had in my stash. It was a paperclip, but I broke the wire off and glued the 5 in place.
That's it for this simple card.
See you soon-hope your day is going well and that you are safe and warm. It's pretty cold here in Austin today, 40's and windy. I am staying inside today. Yesterday's winter day was MUCH nicer 79 and sunny...
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek,
