Do you ever make a card were you like the original idea but aren't too sure about the end result? Well this is one of those cards for me!
We're (well hubby is!) putting up some new blinds and we have lots of corrugated cardboard left over to go into our recycling bin, so I decided to grab a little bit to go onto a card, thinking that the card could double as a portion of a tree trunk.
Stamps (Hero Arts) - Lil Hoot & Fantastic Birthday
I started by die cutting the windows in the corrugated card which of course flattened it completely. As I wanted lots of texture, I poked a paint brush into each of the flattened pieces to pop them back up again. I put the corrugated card on foam pads and embossed the "happy happy" sentiment on a backing card. Then I stamped and cut out lots of little owls from the Lil Hoot set, coloured them in with ProMarkers and put them peeking out of the windows. The birthday sentiment was stamped using a mix of distress inks.
I'm submitting this card into the Birthday Challenge at Hero Arts (kids or rainbow section) as well as the Simon Says Stamp Get Krafty Challenge.
