You’ve Got Happy Mail!

You’ve Got Happy Mail!

Hello and welcome back, it’s Karen here today.  I've got a card today that features the Owl My Love and Happy Fall stamp sets from Gerda Steiner Designs, because who doesn't love happy mail?!  Here's a picture of my card.

I used Copic markers to colour in all the images and then fussy cut them out.  I die cut 4 of the wooden frames from a Hero Arts die called Wood Frame.  I used some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo to ink blend on the top frame, and then glued the layers together.

From the inside section of one of the frames, I inked up a grassy green colour, spritzed it with water and blotted up some of the ink with a paper towel.  Once it was dry, I freestyle cut a grassy hill.  

On the card front, I stamped and clear heat embossed the sentiment (which is from the Owl My Love set) below where the frame would sit. Next, I masked off the area outside where the frame would go, and used a cloud stencil (Cloud Edger  from Colorful Life Designs) to create the sky.  I then glued the frame around the inked area.  And finally, I adhered the images with glue and foam tape as needed.  I love that squirrel that is jumping for joy!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day.

Now, I know this is not your typical wedding card, but it is a fun...
