Owl Thanks For Being My Friend

Owl Thanks For Being My Friend
Made this card for my tomorrow training roommate. I am making 3"x3" mini card as I would like to include a gift for her as well in a transparent gift pouch. Hope she likes it!

Sketch Saturday Week #281
This card layout is inspirational from Sketch Saturday Week #281 sketch/challenge as shown above.

Close-up : The owl
The owl is stamped on a white circle and colored using Copic markers. The edges are distressed with ink to tone down the whiteness. Some black faux stitching are added as the circle border.

Close-up : Punched border
On a pink card base, it is layered with a pink polka dots pattern paper which seems mimic the snow! Just perfect for the owl wearing scarf! A strip of stripe pattern paper is punched with border is attached to the card as in the sketch.

Close-up : The sentiment
The sentiment is stamped in two tiers since the card base is not lengthy enough to accommodate.

Finally the owl is attached to the card base as in the sketch using pop dots to give some dimension. Two (2) googly eyes are added to the owl! Just love him with eyes open rather than closed!

Dimension : 7.62cm x 7.62cm or 3" x 3"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None

what an adorable Friendship card, I'm sure your friend is going to be delighted to receive it (with a little gift too - lucky lady) I doubt anyone would fail to feel the love in your cozily wrapped up Owl with his wonderful googly eyes. Your punched out border is so effective. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
