I’m shameless

Absolutely shameless, and a slacker, to boot. The slacker complex creeps in every time I watch Julie & Julia. I feel like a slacker for not cooking (much) and for blogging even less. Not that any of that is going to change, mind you, but I do love watching that movie. Maybe if I watch it enough I will become immune to feeling inadequate. Or I will learn to ignore those feelings. But I won’t stop watching it.

Now for the shameless part. This card is an absolute shameless CASE of a card I saw on DarleneDesigns’ blog. It was so adorable, I couldn’t resist. She does some very clever things over there, you should go see. I didn’t take the time to change it up except using different stamps and a Nestability for the oval on the front, only because I don’t own all of the supplies she used.

There you have it. I will probably be making more of these at some point. They were fairly easy to do once I got the hang of it, and other images/punches could be used to vary the design.

Happy World Cardmaking Day to you all! Back to my movie.

Stamps: Hero Arts (wood grain, Happy Birthday, musical note), PaperTrey Ink (owl “feathers”, inside sentiment)
Other: SU Owl Punch, Copic markers, clear embossing powder, Nestability die – standard ovals

  3. Perfect CASE. Hey, when it's good "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"! You did an excellent job on this. I have been wanting to do a pop up card forever, and this is such a great inspiration. Thanks for sharing the link! Best, Curt

  4. Hi there Jackie! I did find the zebra paper and some cool Martha Stewart sealer that brushes on to boot, allll ON SALE! Gotta love a sale! I will post the latest creations 2morrow. Thanks for visiting mine and leaviing me a comment, I don't get much action over there! I love your cute owl card! Soooo precious, I might have to lift that idea, hope you don't mind!
