Dwight's Birthday

Taking a break from Christmas cards for a day!

Dwight's birthday was last week and I wanted to share the card that I made for him. I love how it out. I used the new "Open Presents" set and I am so glad I got that one!

I stamped the owl on Kraft cardstock which worked well because that provided a natural color for the owl to start with. Then, I took my colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits to add some more browns and blues to him. I cut him out and popped him up with pop dots. The piece of lined paper is also on pop dots. Since I didn't have to mail this card, I could use lots of dimension! You can see the dimension better in these next photos.

I also crimped the red cardstock strip to add more texture and dimension and then took my Burnt Umber Palette spot and inked it up just a little.

The words "happy birthday" are two individual stamps from the "Open Presents" stamp set.

Stamps: The Angel Company's "Open Presents", "Be Square"
Inks: Burnt Umber & Reflection Blue Palette
Paper: TAC Brown, Kraft, Scarlet & Ultrasmooth White
Other: Crimper, Pop Dots, Colored Pencils, Odorless Mineral Spirits


  1. I just love how this card came out! Great job.

  2. Love how the owl turned out. And the crimping adds so much to the card. rita w
