Dapper Owl Handmade Card

Dapper Owl Handmade Card

Handmade Top Hat Owl Card

I have been wanting the Billionaire Cartridge for a long time. I’ve been holding out since it was mostly a font cartridge, and cost so much. At my Walmart, the price went to $20, so a snatched this cartridge up. I love the mustaches, tops hats, monocle, and Victrola. My husband said I had to make an owl card with a monocle, and here he is.  I cut the owl from Create a Critter at 3.” I used three different shades of blue for owl. I used the darkest color for the base, the lightest color for the middle layer, and the middle color for the top layer. The monocle and hat both were cut out from the Billionare Cartridge at 2.” For the first layer, I used dark red that I inked up with Victoria Velvet. Then I layered on a piece of designer paper at an angle. The ribbon is white ribbon that I inked up with tea dye and vintage photo, and then taped it to the card. After adhering my owl, I tied a bow with my left over ribbon. The card base was adhered to a kraft card base that I inked up some distress ink in tea dye and vintage photo. In the inside of the card I wrote, “Hello Dear Friend.” Hope you like this new card, and it inspires you to use your cartridges together to make one image.
