I spent a few days last week at my sister's, and while I was there we went shopping for my seven-year-old niece's new backpack. She fell in love with one with an owl pattern, so I thought it would be fun to send her a card with the same look. Click here to see the backpack from Pottery Barn Kids, where I got my inspiration.
This adorable owl is cut from the Cricut Hoot 'n' Holler cartridge, at 3 1/2". I wanted a patterned turquoise for his wings, but I couldn't find just the right paper. So, I stamped the My Creative Time Spring Chicken Background with Papertrey Ink's Hawaiian Shores ink onto Hawaiian Shores cardstock. Perfect! I also attached this owl with an Action Wobble, to give him some fun movement for my niece.
The fun purple shapes are cut from the Cricut Feeling Groovy cartridge, at 1 3/4" and 2". The flowers are cut at 1 3/4" from the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. I topped them with buttons created with the Papertrey Ink Buttoned Up #2 Die. Lastly, I added a little sentiment from the MCT Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set.
