What a Hoot!

CAS and quirky.  That's my style.  I'm more likely to keep things simple with a trick or two than to bling-it-up.  So, I play with interactive cards, 3-D projects, fancy folds and fun techniques.  The Sweet 'N' Sassy owls make it easy to get a giggle on a special day card.




The wiper card has been around for a while.  With this card, I tweaked the technique by reversing the fold mechanism and adding a wobble spring to the wiper.  When the card is opened, the little owl on the top pops up and wobbles.  Fun?




I used elements from several Sweet 'N' Sassy Stamp sets.  The large owl and sentiments are Owl Be Here, cut with the new coordinating Owl Die.  The branch is from the new Love Birds, cut with the coordinating Love Birds Die, and the little owl is from Bookmark Bits & Pieces.  I used the cloud die cut from the new Happy Happy Dies to sponge the bg clouds.

Have fun, all!
