Masculine Owl Birthday

blogIMG_9366

Here’s a card I made for my male cousin. The background paper is from a Bo Bunny 6X6 pad called Camp-a-lot. It obviously by the name is outdoor type theme. It is a good one for male cards. The next layer is embossed with a Tim Holtz folder called woodgrain. The tree is a die cut by Memory Box – Small Alder Tree. The owl is a stamp from Hobby Lobby. I heat embossed the owl with brown powder on a piece of balsa wood. The balsa wood was cut out with a Spellbinders die Curved Rectangles (S5-006). I then colored in the owl with Copics. The sentiment banner is Spellbinders die Ribbon Banners (S4-324). The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp More Sketchy Banner Greetings set. The embossing powder by Sparkle N Sprinkle is called white but is really more of a winter white which is what I was going for. The photo is a bit washed out but the card has been mailed so here it is.
