Nerdy Owl

     The bigger the glasses the nerdier this owl looks. For this card I made a 3 x 6 3/4" card with a money pocket that is 1 1/2 deep. To make the card base and to see more examples check out Karen Hightower's directions on Stamp TV. 
     For this card I started with a tag collage using Karen Burniston's "Tags Pivot Card" die set. Since some of the tags had a lot of white on them, I distressed the edges of each with the color of the pattern. The sentiment is from Gina K's "Elegant Florals 2". I stamped, fussy cut, and pop dotted this owl from Gina K's "Friends Til The End". I stamped him on the envelope as well. He is sporting Karen Burniston's glasses from "Props 1". 
Inside of Card
     For the inside of the card, I added a strip of pattern paper flush with the top of the pocket. This owl is "Poppy the Owl" -- another Karen Burniston die. The hearts you see here and there come from this die set.
     To complete: Just add money!!!
