I'm back for my second post today! I love getting cards done, makes me feel productive :)
This card I actually completed 2 days ago, but just put the finishing touches on it to fully complete it.
I cut the owl from my Cricut Create-a-Critter cartridge, drew in the eyes and added green glitter to it's feathers and the leaves of the branch.
For the strap across the front, I got the idea from an image I found on Pinterest, but didn't pin it and now can't find that item...so I had to go from memory.
Once the string is unwound, the straps open up and the card flips open.
I added some brown stitching to the scalloped border to give it some detail. This card turned out great, and I really like it! I hope to make more of them for other occasions since it's so cute!
This card is entered in the following challenge:
Charisma Cardz #11-Pocket Card
For my next card, I went black and white with a touch of color:
I colored in the bluebell image with my pencils, then added some silver paint dots around the frame and on the sentiment panel.
I added a butterfly from my awesome find at the dollar store. Had a little trouble getting it attached...since it's normally on a stick, there ends up being a knob on the back causing there not to be a flat part to attach to the card. So I used some liquid glue to attach a small piece of cardstock so that would create a flat surface. I realize now that using hot glue would have worked better...but pulling out my glue gun would have been a lot of work...I chose the lazier route :)
