Owl Be Missing You This Valentines Day | Cricut Card

Did you see the really cute cards I made for the Valentines Card Exchange I am a part of? Well check them out {here}. After making those I realized I didn't want to make a whole bunch for other people in my life but I didn't want to leave my sisters out.

So I made my sisters these Owl Be missing you Cards.

Owl Cricut Card

This is what the card looks like from the front. I made it using my Cricut. I used the Cricut Cartridge, "Just Because" Cards to make the owl. He is supposed to be a small accent on a card.

But I saw this awesome pin the other day...


 

I thought it was GENIUS and the perfect idea for my sister's valentine cards.

I cut the owl at 14.5 in and used the same size for all the coordinating pieces. I then cute two shadows at 13 in.

One shadow was actually used for the shadow behind the shape. The other shadow was used like the pin explained to make the card.

By using the 13in Shadow and the 14.5 in card it fit PERFECTLY into an A2 envelope!

I also used some of my Stickles Glitter Glue to Jazz it up.

Owl Card Sentiment

On the inside I wrote "Owl be missing you this Valentines Day"

There is is all cute standing up!

Just about the cutest card ever! and SO easy once I figured out the correct size.

Other supplies I used were my Scotch ATG {Advanced Tape Glider}, Zig 2-Way Chisel Glue Pen, and 3-d Dots Adhesive Foam Squares. These are three supplies that I consider basics when making cards!

I got my second valentine from the exchange in the mail today! It is sooo cute! Cant wait to share it with you and am even more excited to get the next ones!
