Today’s tutorial is written by the wonderful Cindy Lawrence. She shows us how to tailor an envelope or as she puts it “Hip to be a Square”.

For my card that matches the tailored envelope I started by stamping the owl from The Greeting Farm’s Forest Friends in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was colored with Copic Markers (R00, R01, R02, R05, E41, E42, E43, E44 G00, G02, G05, E50) and cut out. I chose the owl image so the card would work for Patty’s Hope you Can Cling To challenge.

A frame was cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 3 and Classic Oval Nestabilities die out of Stampin’ Up!’s Soft Suede cardstock. The owl was adhered to the frame and a Baby Bling Rhinestone was adhered to each end.

The card base is a 4″ x 8″ piece of Solar White cardstock scored in half. The bottom corners were rounded.

A 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Cosmo Cricket Clementine paper was stitched slightly over a 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of the same paper pack.  A 1 1/2″ wide strip of white cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug’s Polka Dots embossing folder and adhered under the layers. Everything was taped to the card base.

A sentiment from the set was stamped on a piece of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest of the Petite Oval Nestabilities die and airbrushed with Copic Marker R02. It was adhered to the lower right edge of the horizontal layers. Baby bling was lined up under the sentiment and  part of a Finesse swirl was adhered slightly over it. The frame with owl was adhered to the card base with dimensionals.  Stardust Stickles over the pink feathers of the owl finishes off the card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
