...I can finally blog this card now that valentines is over.
It was really nice this year as for the first time EVER
I made a card for my husband.
It was quite difficult as I didn't fancy doing the usual gush of hearts in red or pink.
The design idea was born from Papercraft Inspirations Magazine issue 96.
The colour scheme is of a more manly and sedate taste
and much more appealing to my hubby.
I used my cricut to cut the branches the owls are sat on,
The design is from the 'zooballoo' cartridge.
The design papers I used are 'abstract prints' by Dovecraft.
The colours in this pack are beautiful autumnal and tonal shades,
well suited for the making of male orientated cards.
These gorgeous little owls were simple to make and yet sooo effective I think.
The pearlised cardstock used is one from my stash,
I feel it adds that extra dimension and depth to the overall look
The ribbon and pearls are also from my stash.
By using these little black pearls for their eyes it really adds life to these little cuties.
I decided to hand write the sentiment
feeling that this gave the card a more personal touch.
