Artfully Sent Swing Card - Whooo Misses You?

I've been making my way through all the nifty cards you can make with the Artfully Sent cartridge, and this week I'm sharing my adventures with swing cards (which are part of the "Scene" buttons). 

This adorable little owl card is from page 11 of the booklet. The owl's eyes are backed with Canary cardstock and his cute heart is Ruby cardstock. I added a layer of Whimsy Paper Fundamentals for some texture (and no, I didn't hand-cut around the owl; I just cut a second card base and only used that one portion).

The card base is Kraft and the "Missing You" liner is White Daisy backed with Crystal Blue, Lagoon and Ruby cardstock. I also used a scallop punch on the edges. 

I always think I'm going to keep it simple, but then I start playing around with all the extra buttons, and end up adding a lot more! I cut out the leaves and branches from the Sentiment card in Canary and used them to decorate the front and inside. I also pop-dotted the little Kraft heart from the owl's belly on the inside to add a fun surprise. Red Enamel Hearts were my finishing touches, along with the stamped "I love you!" in Crystal Blue. This came from the sentiment stamp set that comes with the collection.
