A study of wisdom......

How gorgeous are these wise owls?

This is an A5 card for an elderly and much loved uncle who was once as wise as they are but is now, sadly, in residential care. However, he is safe and well cared for and I know that he will most definitely appreciate this Birthday card which has been handcrafted with love.
Resource - Materials - Method

Jem's Designs Cardz 4 Men - 3 cd set
Cryogen White card from Craft Creations
Gold Mirri Board
Gold peel offs
Finger-lift tape
3d foam tape
Pinflair glue
I imported the elements from the cd that Iwould be working with into my MCS graphics programme and printed an A5 background and two different sized toppers. Using the crop tool I picked a piece of colour from the topper and created a border strip and a background for my sentiment tag, onto which I printed my text and then cutting it with a Spellbinder die - Label A.
It was then a simple case of edging the main card and inking over the edges of the tag with Distress Ink - Tea Dye - before matting and layering all the elements.

I hope you like the finished design.
