Birthdays Are a Hoot! Tut! Tut!

Today I am showcasing images and sentiments from Diane's Daydream Designs.  I always seem to need birthday cards and I'll bet you do too.  I used to have a collection of owls but now I collect owl stamps/images instead.  No dusting!   

My card uses a Cbug embossing folder for dry embossing, a cut-out window, the dryer sheet glitter technique, and a fancy tags die from Spellbinders.  If you are unfamiliar with the dryer sheet technique, you adhere adhesive to the image, place a twice-used dryer sheet on top, sprinkle with fine glitter, and rub in with your finger.  Several people have asked about this technique so I thought I would include it here.

The set I used is called Birthday Hoot --How cute are these little owls!--and can be purchased at Diane's Daydream Designs.   It has become one of my favorite "go-to" sets for celebrations.

There are more wonderful images at Diane's Daydream Designs or you can pop over to her blog and sign up for her newsletter so you can see new releases and samples showcasing the sets or hear news of other free images, blog hops, or sales.

I will enter this cute owl card in these challenges:

This is just soooo cute, Kren! My daughter used to collect owls, too, and she'd love this card of yours. :-D

The dryer sheet gives your owl a wintry look. The dies cut and embossing are nice design elements. Thanks for visiting with us at 713 Avenue Create.

This is awesome, Kren. I just love pressure embossing and often forget to use my embossing folders. It gives such a great texture to the card. Thanks for sharing with us in our challenge this week. It's always SUCH a blessing to me to have you share your amazing art with us.
God bless your week,
Word Art Wednesday
