mum2maggie asked if the image was by Inky Antics and it is. The owl is one image and the triangle box is a stamp and then you cut and fold.

I used scraps from my stash again and that is a great feeling. These papers are from a line SU! no longer carries. I have a few pieces left and will be using them up instead of saving them (what DO I save them for?????).

This is one of the cards we made last Saturday at my papercraft class. There were only 4 of us, but we had lots of fun.
This dog image is a Whipper Snapper one that my friend Michelle sent me. She is GREAT at sending fun images for me to play with. Ü The sentiment is from Lizzie Anne Designs "So Much Love" set.
I used scraps from my scrap pile to make this and colored it using the Gamsol and colored pencil technique.

The notched pink panel as well as the white one I stamped on is cut with my Cricut.

This is easy to do with Lizzie Anne Designs "So Much Love" set.
I found these little notecards and scallop edged envelopes in my stash (have NO idea where they came from) and decided they were the perfect size for a Valentine.
I used some red patterned paper in a paper pad I had won on a blog some time last year and hadn't used yet. It is from SU!
The notch pieces were cut from Cricut cartridge Accent Essentials. Ribbon is from SU! and eyelets are another item that's been in my stash from a long time ago. I doodled on the white piece and envelope flap with Pigma pen.

I turned mine on the side. That's the beauty of sketches, you can turn them around to fit your image. I really love how this turned out. I love the blue and brown together. The polka dot brown is double sided paper by Scenic Route called Ashville/Clayton Street. The "branch" design is on the opposite side and I thought it was perfect for this Hedgehog Snowman image by SU! called Holiday Hedgehog. I have one small piece of this paper left and sure hope the scrapbook store in Kearney has more as I love the colors and the polka dots.
The snowflake embossed (Cuttlebug) piece was cut with Cricut Cartridge "Accent Essentials". I don't have the SU! Top Notch die and love that I can cut about any size I want with the same look using the Cricut diecut machine. I also cut the Not Quite Navy oval cardstock with the George cartridge. Scallop piece was cut with Marvy punch.
The dark chocolate ribbon is from JoAnn Fabrics. I am getting low and will need to get another roll. I just wish we didn't live so far from there! It's hard to justify driving about 1.5 hrs one way for a roll of ribbon! LOL!!
To finish it off I used 3 mini antique brads by Making Memories, white ink for distressing, and antique large eyelets for the ribbon to go through.

Here is the card I made for a friend. She has received it, so I can post it here now. Ü
I love this paper line called McKenna by K & Co. I cut the felt heart freehand and layered it onto natural batting for a little more depth. I stitched around the edges with embroidery floss. The felt flowers were cut with Cuttlebug die plates. I couldn't believe it, but you can cut TWO thicknesses at the same time!
Buttons are by Basic Grey and misc and the vintage lace is some I had in my stash. This is by far my favorite Valentine I've ever made.
