Loved this card when I saw it--so I cased it and decided to make to--it's pretty straight forward....and easy!
Thanks to Kimberly Van Diepen for the great card idea!
I've been a bit busy over the past few days welcoming my new granddaughter to this world!

I had every intention of making this owl into a "mint patty cover" (that doesn't sound right to me, but I can't think of a better way to say it) when I pinned this idea over a year ago. Anyway--Frenchie made this card and got me to thinking about how it would be cute in a bit bigger size. So here's what I came up with:
I used the woodgrain embossing folder and the new cloud folder. The sentiment is from a retired set.

I saw a card that was very similar to this one and tried to recreate it. I used some retired....long retired dsp and eyelet punch00can't remember if it's retired or not. I used the stamp set "For the Birds" and some framelits to cut out the picture and background. Add some pearls, very vanilla taffeta ribbon and a retired sentiment and wa-la....here you have it:

This card is made using the Patio party dsp and the Beautiful Wings embosslit. I'm not a huge fan of the Summer Starfruit in color, but thought this was a cute layout by Tammy Fite. I don't like ribbon showing on the inside of my card so I made another layer to prevent this and added a SAB set sentiment using the ticket punch.

Everytime I see a card created with the reinker technique I fall in love with it all over again. The 5th Avenue Floral set was perfect for this technique, but I tried, actually CASE'd this card using the set "Fabulous Florets." I used the retired Peach Parfait, and Calypso Coral reinkers and my favorite all time embossing powder "Silver Pearl" (not a Su product) and no longer available anywhere. =-) I also used the shimmery white paper from Stampin' Up--another product I love.
I just think it's gorgeous--thanks to Diane Vander Galien for the beautiful card to case! Her name is linked to her blog.

I know this set (Mixed Medley) is now retired, but I had to use it--it is too cute to pass by for a valentine! I got this idea from the "I Teach Stamping" blog created by Megan Daves. It's a great site to visit! Here's the card:
I also used the red glitter paper for the hearts inside the top and bottom scallops. The dsp is from the Summer Smooches collection. I'll be back tomorrow with another card....
