Birthday Owls

Good Morning!

I am trying to catch up on birthday cards for family members. I am usually very good at getting them their gifts on their birthday but this summer I have been really bad. Most of the cards need to be masculine which is not alway easy for me.

Here are two cards where I used Gina's Owl Always Love You set. Since I still have sooo much scrap paper left, I forced myself to use some of that to make these two.
The cards are not the standard 41/4 x 5 1/2. A while ago I had cut some paper for a 5x5 book and had left over so I used that for the card base.

I used the Scalloped Oval Nestibilities for the first card and the Paisley for the other card. The layout is pretty much the same for both cards.
The owls are colored with Copic markers. I used a few different punches on the cards, Friskar Threading Water and Diamond border punches, SU's scalloped circle and EK Success Flourish punch. The cs and the dp on the first card is SU's. I do not remember where I got the dp for the second card.
The corners are the SU Scalloped circle punch cut in half. I have been eyeing the new scalloped corner punch but have been trying to talk myself out of it because they can be made with punches. I am not so sure I will be able to do that for very long...

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
