Today's post will be a short one. I must admit, I have some wrapping to do while everyone is out of the house and today may be my last chance. So I thought we would move in the direction of an upcoming holiday - Valentine's Day. I love all the red and pink you see during February. Hearts, flowers, and candy seem to be in abundance and it is a time to let those you love know how important they are to you.
Aren't they a cute couple? Mr. and Mrs. Owl out on a wire. For owls, I am sure this is a good date. The base card for this one is a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock. I scored it and then place the front of the card into the impression folder called Framed Tulips. It creates just what it say - a frame of tulips around the edges. I then cut a piece of Basic Black to fit inside and a piece of Very Vanilla to layer on top of that. Before attaching the vanilla piece, I grabbed a stamp set offered in last years Occasions Mini called Valentine Defined. This set is retired but I still enjoy using it. I stamped the wire of hearts onto the card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink. I then adhered the vanilla to the black. Then using the owl builder punch, I made my owls. I wanted to jazz up their date outfits so I used the red glimmer card stock. To differentiate between the boy and girl, I made Mr. Owl a vanilla heart boutonniere and gave Mrs. Owl a vanilla skirt. The skirt was made by punching a large oval out of vanilla and then punching a scallop oval around the hole from the large one. I trimmed off a piece to make the skirt fit. Once they were made, I attached them using dimensionals. I took the "love" stamp from the Valentine Defined stamp set and stamped it in between the owls using Cherry Cobbler ink. Using the Heart to Heart punch, I punched several of the small hearts out of the glimmer paper and sprinkled them all over the scene. I also made the little girl a bow by using 2 of the hearts from the owl builder punch and a 1/4" circle punch. They are all dressed up and ready to go.
Believe it or not that's all for today. I appreciate you dropping in to see my card. Please come back tomorrow for another project. See you then.
