I am excited that for the last two days I have been able to hang out in my scrap space. I really needed it this week as I have 2 birthday, a wedding, a anniversary, and 3 father's day cards to make. This is the first time I have been able to scrapbook since Rhylan was born. Now that she will hang out in her vibrating chair or on her playmat I am hoping that I will be able to get more done. I made this card for my cousin's baby who is turning one this week.
I started with some Marina Mist cardstock. I then used my new texturzs plates from Stmapin' Up to add some texture to the Certainly Celery cardstock. The pattern paper is from my new 6x6 Jillian Bean Soup pack of paper. I matted it with some more Marina Mist. The Owl is created with the Owl Punch from Stampin' Up. His wings are made by cutting a Scalloped Oval in half. I used the Tiny Leaves sizzlet to give him a branch to sit on. His hat is a triangle cut from some of the Jillian Bean Soup paper. I cut off a small pom pom from the Tangerine Tango Pom Pom Ribbon from Stampin' Up and added it to the top of the hat. I mounted the owl and branch on a circle cut from Whisper White Cardstock with the circle nestabilities. I then mounted it on a Marina Mist scalloped circle cut with my nestabilities. The balloon is made from an oval Nestability and cutting a little of the sides to make it more like a balloon shape. I then attached a small bow and tail made out of baker's twine. I added some Marina Mist Ribbon across the bottom to finish it off.
For the inside of the card I used Marina Mist Ink and the new Birthday Set from Stampin' Up. I used a strip of Jillian Bean Soup paper across the top with a strip of Certainly Celery punched with the scalloped border punch. I matted the piece off whisper White cardstock with Certainly Celery to finish of the card.
