For my card, I decided to make a welcome baby card since I have a feeling I will need this kind of card soon.
I had lots of fun making this card. I want the card to have celebratory feeling yet has softness to it since it's for baby. I feel the ribbon banners convey that feeling perfectly. For me banner represent the celebratory feeling and the soft colors lend the softness that I wanted.
These yummy twill ribbons are from May Arts and yep... they are my favorite ribbons!!
Now, that owl... I made it! Simply cut a rectangle out of brown cardstock, cut a curve on the top side of the rectangle (okay, since I am a bit of a perfectionist, I didn't free hand-cut this, I actually used my circle cutter to cut the curve). For the owl body, same thing, cut a small rectangle, but this time I used the oval cutter since it created a deeper curve.
Use circle punch for the eyes, nip a triangle for the black part and cut a small triangle for the beak. I rarely made my own design, so when I do and the result is pretty adorable like this owl (a bit bias here... hah), I feel like patting myself on the back. :) Now, I am curious to know what you think of this card, of the owl.
Thank you so much for stopping by here and I hope you enjoy your visit.
