Owl Shaped Birthday Card By Melin

Happy Hump day crafty peeps! Hope you’re week is going well. For those following along with the Psalm reading for the counting of the Omer, here is today’s passage:

ג Gimel
17 Deal bountifully with Your servant, 
That I may live and keep Your word. 
18 Open my eyes, that I may see 
Wondrous things from Your law. 
19 I am a stranger in the earth; 
Do not hide Your commandments from me. 
20 My soul breaks with longing 
For Your judgments at all times. 
21 You rebuke the proud—the cursed, 
Who stray from Your commandments. 
22 Remove from me reproach and contempt, 
For I have kept Your testimonies. 
23 Princes also sit and speak against me, 
But Your servant meditates on Your statutes. 
24 Your testimonies also are my delight 
And my counselors.
Psalm 119: 17-24

May the Lord open the eyes of our hearts that we may see His goodness and mercy. Blessings to you for reading and meditating on His Word.


Now on to today’s project. My daughter asked me to make a card for her. She had a friend who was celebrating a birthday recently. Her friend loves owls, so this is what I came up with.

I created this super cute owl in my Pazzles Inspiration software. I turned her into a card by welding the base image together. I used some patterned paper from the Neon Chic Stack from Die Cuts With A View. I also used some black glitter paper from the Glitzy Glitter stack for her shoes, eyes and eyelashes.

I inked her blue eyes with Lagoon and beak pieces with Sunset inks from my Adventure Ink Pad set. I also inked her tummy piece with some Blush ink  and her other pieces with some Cranberry Ink pad  and Ruby Ink pads.

Here’s a closer look, you still can’t see the “glitter” of the black of her eyes and eyelashes too well, but it is a nice paper with a good coating that won’t let the glitter shed. I used some stickles for the white of the eye glints. I topped her off with a pretty little purple bow and a gem from the Clear Sparkles Assortment set.  I think she turned out super cute and my daughter informed me that her friend really liked it. So it was a win-win Smile
