Hi Crafty Friends,
It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month, it's time to introduce our new challenge hostess for the month which is Kelly Santi.
Apparently June 20th is National Eagle Day in the USA so let’s celebrate this national symbol. It’s a time set aside raise awareness about the bald eagle and to preserve the bird's natural habitat. Please use an eagle (or bird) on your card/project to celebrate this winged treasure
One thing my stash is missing is Eagles, so I decided to use my favorite time of bird ... the owl to create my card. My daughter's had recently given me owl stamps for Mother's Day so it was a good opportunity to use those.
As you can see I created a Slimline Pop-up card using Paper Rose Studio's Slimline Portrait Scene die. All the various layers you see on this card all cut separately, so it is easy to color the various different layers however you want.
To decorate my card I used the owl stamps from Uniquely Creative's Little Hoot stamp set and the flowers and "owlsome" sentiment from their Owl Family stamp set.
I layered the flowers over the grass tuffs of the slimline die, as they looked a little like flower stems.
The remainder of the sentiment at the top of the card is from a Honey Bee Stamps stamp set.
For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. As you can see I created a double pop-up for this card. I added the "Happy Birthday" sentiments which is from Altenew's Birthday Builder stamp set and added an owl under each part of the sentiment.
I added one of the borders from Scrapbook.com's Slim Borders die set to each of the edges of the card.
