When I need to send a note to one of my kids' teachers, I love to use a cute notecard that I've made. Today's project uses the adorable Hero Arts Owl Trio set.
Eight notecards & envelopes (above) were packaged as a gift, but I made a few extra for me to have on hand. My friend Mish is the inspiration behind these cards and the altered clothes pin that holds the postage.
These are a slim design card - they do not exceed 1/4" in height when in their envelopes so (if you're in the USA) there is no additional postage needed for this design.
Using Basic Grey Origins 6x6 papers, I stamped two of the owl images several times each onto the patterned paper. Using a black Glaze pen I dotted various parts of the owls' bodies. If you've never used a Glaze pen this is a good photo to see what it does - the nib is pressure sensitive, so when you press down on the nib, the ink pools right where you want it. When dry there is a neat embossed effect that you can see and feel.
With the little dots to fill in around these owl bodies I just press and lift with the Glaze pen, and repeat; this went quickly.Orange bling is Hero Arts.
Eyes are black gems (Hero Arts).
I added a sticker from Origins Pops to the lid of the professional gift presentation box (from Nashville Wraps #SB738). Sentiment is from A Muse.
Card bases are yummy Arturo Stone Grey notecards with envelopes. Excellent quality card base with a delicious look and feel to them.
The tatted doily under the cards: I made this for my grandparents about 20 years ago; I've been tatting about 25 years and was taught by a lady named Connie Barone when I lived in Florida. It's a fun thing to do in the car for super long trips.
