Owl takes the cake

On CCEE stampers Blog Hostess Frances has a special challenge for us.

As today is my birthday let's create a card that includes the things I love … owls and cards that pop up; flip or pull open; accordion style etc. Any type of construction style card will do anything goes but preferably not a flat card this week.

I have been wanting to try making a card with stencils and glitter since I saw Karen Burniston's tutorial last month. I had the glitter in my supplies but the stencil is still on the wish list so I had to go with another stencil, but I love this look. The owl and hearts are peel off stickers that I applied micro fine glitter too and coloured it with copic pens.

On the inside I used the cake pop up to make this glitter cake, the ring pull edges on the top and bottom and the Suzanne Cannon Quietfire designs happy birthday in gold.

I will be giving this card to Frances on her birthday, shades of sparkly blue, pop up and with a owl all her favourite things, I think it ticks all the boxes. Happy Birthday Frances.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs.
