Owls + Books

August 16, 2017

I was looking through the Simon Says Stamp August 2017 Monthly Card Kit today. I found this scrap of paper from one of the pattern papers included in the kit. The words at the bottom remind me of my grandmother. So I created this card for her.


Card Front


Inside of Card


Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I began this card with a strip of pattern paper. I added a few stamped images about the words already printed on the paper. I used colored pencils to color the owls in and add a bit of ground. I cut a shallow fish tail to the bottom of the strip to create a banner shape.

I found another larger piece of pattern paper to add interest to my card base. I used a light tan card stock to create a card base. I adhered the orange dotted paper to the card base. I used foam tape to adhere the banner to the card front.

For the inside of the card, I die cut the letters for the word “you” from the same orange paper I used on the card front. I adhered them down with liquid glue and added a few smaller sentiments in black ink.
