Love With Owl My Heart!

Hi Everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!! I've been trying to use my Silhouette Cameo that I received last July for my birthday!! It has been so much fun learning how to use it and creating some projects with it. I have two friends that had a birthday on the day after Valentine's Day, so I decided to use some of the cuts that I bought from the Silhouette Store to create this Owl Heart Pocket Birthday Card for them! I think it came out so cute!!

For the Heart Pocket, I cut Silhouette Heart Pocket #24583 by Alaa'K out of Pebbles Yours Truly ~ Heart Strings Design Paper. I added a ruffle of Melissa Frances Crepe Paper that I found at a local scrapbook store.  I gathered two strips of the Crepe Paper using a running stitch and then I glued them to the inside of the heart using some Fabritac.  I added some red seam binding and a ribbon flower that I made using some ribbon that I found at the Dollar Store. The resin heart in the center of the ribbon flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts!


For the Owl Card, I cut Silhouette Love Owl Treat Pocket #72430 by Pebbles In My Pocket from the same Pebbles Design Paper. I glittered the wings using  DecoArt Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint ~ Ice Crystal. I added a birthday hat that I stamped using Hampton Arts ~ Doddlebug Design Birthday Set #ICO163. The tiny buttons and "XOXO" are from my stash.

I also made a larger Heart Pocket to give for Valentine's Day that I cut using Silhouette Heart Pocket #24996 by Lori Whitlock  from the same Pebbles Design Papers.  I adjusted the design of the cut by deleting the holes that were at the top of the heart. The "XOXO" border is from Pebbles Yours Truly ~ First Kiss Design Papers. For the scalloped border, I used one of my favorite punches, EK Success Dotted Scallop Slim Edger Punch and for the border on the card, I used EK Success Arrow Slim Edger Punch. The red and white twine is from Offray that I found at Target.

I made these Candy Boxes as well using Silhouette 3D Heart Cracker Box #73228 by Lori Whitlock. For the acetate window, I used Judikins Embossable Window Plastic.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!! I hope you like all the projects I created!!
I have entered my card into the following challenge:

Have a wonderful day!!

Big Hugs,
