Here is the card I made for a baby boy. This card will be sent to North Carolina with a hand made baby quilt for a boy recently born to a very special family.
I got my instructions from Christy Lee at Tinker With Ink. I used the Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper and the Framelits Labels die cut in my Big Shot. It took a few tries for me to get the "formula" right, but it was worth it!
Here you can see how the card will look flat so it will fit into the envelope. I punched just ONE owl from one of the prints and then a larger circle in Marina Mist to frame it.
I added some sweet embellishments to my "sweet" sentiment from Fabulous Phrases. They are two Marina Mist brads and a folded snippet of Marina Mist 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.
