You’re A Hoot!


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our August challenge hostess Jessie Rone continues to bring us a fun challenge.

For our challenge this week Jessie has challenged us to Animals-use animals on your card.


No big surprise I guess that the animal I decided to use for this challenge was an owl … haha! This owl is a new (to me) die I discovered while shopping in my fav scrapbook store recently. It’s an Owl die by Ellison, they actually didn’t have any on the shelf when I saw it, only a card so when I asked I was told they had packed them to take to a show in Melbourne … so of course they had to bring one back so I could have it. Smile

I have lots of fun styles of cards on my to do list and this is one that has been one there for a little while and is called a Pop Up Box card. I found a couple of places online with instructions on how to create these … the first the box ended up being a little larger, so I ended up using a tutorial I found on A Star for Chemi’s blog which you can find here. You will also find a link to the original tutorial on there too if you are interested.


Here is my card again, this time folded flat so it can be placed in an envelope or box to give to someone.
