This is the card I made for my nephew's birthday - Happy Birthday Josh! For some reason, I just find kid's cards so difficult - in fact DH even suggested I could *gasp* pop down the shop and buy a card. Outrageous!
I used Laura's Sketch 36 from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog to give me a kick start. I cut a hole for the circle and then raised the entire card front up on foam pads before sticking the owl over the aperture.
I've personalised the design with some Dymo wording which also balances it out in terms of visual weight, I think. Sorry about the slight glare from the tape though - too much sunshine in Northumberland!
Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
Owen the Owl (Kim Hughes Collection)
Polka Dot backgrounder
DCWV (blue and green)
Mocha Chica Paper pack (Kim Hughes collection - behind the aperture)
Brilliance by Tsukinkeo (Graphite Black)
Versamark by Tsukineko
Dymo label maker
Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder
Threading Water/Scalloped Lace border punch by Fiskars

I'm sure my nephew won't be too critical (he's not even at school yet ;o) - just hope his mum and dad like it!
Thanks for stopping by!
