January 9, 2012 Small Valentine's Day card (2 3/4 x 3 3/4)

Good evening everyone!
I found some super cute brown envelopes a few weeks back at Archiver's.
It was $2.99 for 12 envelopes (4 x 3.75 in).
I thought it would be cute to put the little envelopes inside the treat bags for my daughter's class.

I am linking this up with
What are You up to? Link up party;0)

This is what I used to make the little owl Valentine's day cards......
Cardstock (base) : Recollections in brown
                  (cover): K&C Company
                  (solids): (old) SU
                  (pattern): K&C Company
Paper punch: Fiskars
Cartridge: Create A Critter

I started off with a piece of 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 inch brown cardstock and scored it at 2 3/4.
I used the Fiskards paper punch on the front piece of the card.
I cut a piece of cream cardstock at 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 for the front of the card.
I cut a piece of patterned paper at 1 1/2 x 3 3/4 for the front of the card.
The patterned cardstock was attached to the cream cardstock with double-sided tape to hold it in place while sewing the pieces together.
Next I used the paper punch on the attached pieces.
I sewed the cream and patterned cardstock next.
After the pieces were sewn together I attached them to the card base with double-stick tape.
The owl and branch pieces were next cut out and attached to the card using zip dry glue.

Hope you like it. If you have any questions....please feel free to write it in the comment section.
TFL and have a great night!;0)
