Embellishing a Shaped Card

Hi everyone! How's your week going? We're out of school now--woo hoo!

I'm up on the Maya Road blog with a couple of cards. Here's one:

You Are My Sunshine

As soon as I saw the Maya Road You Are My Sunshine buttons, I knew I had to use them as owl eyes. I started by die-cutting the owl Build-a-Critter die I picked up when Clear and Simple Stamps had a half-off sale last year.

For the nose, I inked up the Maya Road Mini Confetti Heart chipboard with gold ink. At the bottom of the owl, I added the new Pearl Trim. What owl doesn't need a set of pearls?


You Are My Sunshine


I finished the owl by adding the adorable Maya Road Sparkle Sequin Bow. I am loving these bows and having a hard time not putting them on every card. As a matter of fact, I used the bow on my second card, which is on the Maya Road blog. I hope you check it out! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
