Anniversary Card

Hello crafting friends,

  Today we are making an anniversary card using the Owls, Nothing but Owls stamp set.  This stamp set is very versatile and can be used for making many types of cards. It is always nice to think outside the box and use a stamp for an occasion other then the obvious. (In this case an outdoor/nature card would be the obvious.)

  Owls, Nothing but Owls stamp set
  craft paper
  card stock
  paper doily
  gold thread
  alcohol markers
  die for background
  white embossing powder

To start this card, we cut out the background die four times, two in red and two in black to create the shadow affect. The first card layer measures 6"x6".  The next layer is craft paper with ink splattered on it. Then the die cut layers and the doily are added using some gold thread tucked in between the two layers.  The owl is stamped and cut out for coloring using alcohol markers.  The sentiment was embossed on the fishtail banner and slid under the wings to give the appearance that the owl is holding it up. (The wings were cut to separate them from the body to allow for this.) Lastly, a few gold embellishments were added.
