Owl Old - Birthday Card

I am finally getting back in the swing of crafting and making some cards after a bit of a hiatus. I had to go to my board on Pintrest to get some ideas because after not making cards for awhile my brain was void of any ideas.

Supplies Used:
Basic Grey Paper
Stampin Up Punches
  - Owl
  - Scallop Border
  - 2" Scallop Circle
  - 1" Circle
Colorbox Chalk Ink
Grosgrain Ribbon
Mounting Foam
Stampin Up Marker
Safmat by Letraset

The 2" scallop circles were cut quarters for the wings, and then I cut a slight angle to get them to fit behind the owl correctly.

I did the sentiment using Microsoft Word and then printed on Safmat. I love...LOVE this stuff! It is great for when you are wanting a sentiment that you don't have a stamp for and don't want to wrestle with printing and cutting the paper the right size, which can be time consuming.  I am trying to contact someone at Letrastat to find a US supplier since there are several people wanting this product now.

I have cards to post for the rest of the week as well. I was a busy little ladybug this past weekend!


  1. love all the layering. very nice.

  2. Don't you just love getting back in the swing of things after vacation? As much as vacations are fun there is just something about the everyday:) Love the card and so glad that you had a great vacation. You were missed.

  3. Love that owl, he's so cute!!
    Very cute card!!

  4. Wow, I just clicked on your Safmat link and I'll I've got to say is I WANT IT NOW!!! The only thing is, can you use the rest of the sheet after cutting it? Or you'd need to print out a bunch of stuff all at once maybe? I love the idea of printing in any font, any size :) Get it for us Okie!!

    1. I generally cut the sheet in 4x6 pieces, which works great for adding sentiments. You can cut as close to the printing as you want so it's easy to get a lot of use out of a sheet that size.

  5. There is one person who has multiple packs for sale on ebay, search by Letraset Safmat, not just safmat. :)

  6. That is so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Cute card, glad you were able to get back to craftin'. Can't wait to see what you've been working on, tfs!

  8. I checked out the Ebay seller and honestly can't figure out how much the shipping cost will be. They ship from England. So, if you can contact someone at Letraset and they'll ship, let me know! This looks so good on the card front!

  9. Cute! That Safmat stuff looks really cool. Glad you were able to get your creative mojo going.
