  • Cut the pinking edged paper to 4.75 x 5.5 and mat onto a taupe cardstock base.
  • Add a 2 x 4.75” pink polka dot piece of paper to the bottom of the card.
  • Stamp sentiment and add purple glitter to the hearts.
  • Wrap blue lace around the card and attach onto the backside.
  • Punch circles to add on top of the owl’s eyes.
  • Hand stitch a frame around the owls (straight line in purple and a zig zag in green).
  • Add rhinestone and button accents to tree.

ideas to note:

  • Punch 2 small brown eyes and punch 1 white circle; cut it in half and add on top of the pupils.
  • Machine stitch holes (without thread) for easier hand sewing.
  • Using a glue pen is best when applying glitter to small areas.
