I just made the cutest set of cards for my DD’s birthday coming up the end of the month. They are the invites to her 14th birthday party!
I cut the card at 5 1/2″ inches like I do other cards but this one comes with an envelope… so it is an odd size. Just so you know it is just over 5″ wide.
I cut the base from lime green cardstock and then for the black owl… they only have it as a card so I scooted the image to the side of my gypsy (if you don’t have a gypsy for your cricut you are MISSING OUT!) so it only cut out the owl as I couldn’t hide one side of the card and not the other. My solution to not wasting paper! lol
I used a scallop punch at 1 3/4″ and a circle punch at 1 1/2″ to cut the green glitter eyeballs. The white for the scalloped paper is the paper that comes in scrapbooks…. I save it and use it when it is hidden behind layers or something like in this application.
Another thing I did was added a piece of white paper behind the owls chest feathers. My dd wanted it white there… Finally I put all the layers together and popped dotted the eyes! Multiply that by 7 and I am done!
Thanks for reading my blog… if you want more info on cricut, gypsy, scrapbooking, cardmaking or quilting … even cross stitching! I am your girl 🙂 Have a blessed weekend! Your comments are appreciated! Kathi
