Vintage Owls - Woodland Dream Cards

We've made it to the end of March and I am looking ahead to lovely spring days and spending time outdoors! When I saw Deena's (from Ewe-N-Me Printables) Hang Tags - Vintage Owls I thought of a woodland forest and the beauty of nature. These images are truly striking!

Hang Tags - Vintage Owls

While the colors remind me more of autumn than spring, I couldn't resist using them to make a few any occasion greeting cards. There are three different images and you will get three larger images and six smaller ones on an 8.5 x 11 page. I used the larger size for my cards.

I started with a brown card which I then layered with a panel of ivory textured paper. I stapled a strip of brown burlap to each card and then glued the owl image to each. The images really stand out against the ivory and brown background.

For a bit of decoration I added a paper square stamped with inspirational words in brown ink. I then adorned each card with a vintage style embellishment. 

I had so much fun making these cards and just love those owls!

Hi everyone!

While sorting through and organizing my stash of supplies recently, I came across five rectangular chipboard pieces. I thought they'd be great for creating ATCs which is a project I haven't tried before. Lucky me, they worked perfectly with Ewe-N-Me Printables Hang Tags - St. Patty's Day Tickets.

Hang Tags - St. Pattys Tickets

There are five different ticket designs and you will get two of each on a page.

I started off by spraying each chipboard card with a gold mist paint (it's hard to see in the photo but the mist leaves a shimmery, gold finish). When the paint dried I glued the five different images to each card.

The printable tickets fit perfectly onto each card (the size of the cards are 2-3/4 x 3-3/4). 

These images are so festive and I love the variety!! As a final touch, I added some embellishments that I had on hand -- green and gold gemstones.

Making these ATCs was so much fun and I love the way they turned out. 

I hope I've inspired you to try something new. Be sure to visit the Ewe-N-Me Printables website for more hang tags and inspiration!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! See you next time!
