Mr. & Mrs. Owl

Summer is Vancouver is also a popular time for weddings.  I know there are a handful of our friends who are tying the knot this year so I needed to start pumping out wedding cards.  The owl punch was perfect for such sweet occasions.  If you move the side panels, it moves the owls closer to each other like in the second picture.  And the way they look at each other just makes your heart melt.  I cased the idea of this peek-a-boo card from a project that I found here.  And when it’s flattened, it will still fit inside a standard envelope.  Tadaa!  Isn’t it great?  I decided to use the new In-Colors 2011-13 for this card.  I just totally LOVE how the colors came together!!!

  The back of the card has a pocket for a tag to write a message and on the back of the tag is also a pocket for a gift card.  Cute and also practical!
