The first is a birthday card I made for my daughter, who loves owls!
This is an A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2"). All solid cardstock is Recollections. The patterned cardstocks are from my stash. The patterned cardstock layer on both the front and inside of the card measures 4 x 5 1/4". The green layer on the front measures 3 3/4 x 5", and the green layer on the inside measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2".
I used the Close To My Heart August 2014 Stamp of the Month (What A Hoot) to make the owl, and used the Card Chatter - Birthday stamp set, which is retired, for the sentiment. I used Close To My Heart's Archival Black Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad (item # 44751) to stamp the owl and sentiment. I added small rhinestones to the owls eyes.
The second card is a sympathy card for a dear friend.
This is also an A2 size card (5 1/2 x 4 1/4"). The white cardstock is Close To My Heart White Daisy (item # 1385) and the patterned cardstock was in my stash. The patterned cardstock layer on the front measures 5 1/4 x 4", and the white cardstock layer on the front measures 5 x 3 3/4". I used the Close To My Heart June 2013 Stamp of the Month (A Flowering Bunch) to stamp the flowers and used Close To My Heart's Words of Comfort stamp set, which is retired, for the sentiment. I used Close To My Heart's Archival Black Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad (item # 44751) to stamp the image and sentiment. I added Queen & Co. pearls to the front.
On the inside of the card, I used a strip of the patterned cardstock, which measures 5 1/2 x 1".
