I haven't bought a card at a store in years. In fact, I have a LOT of hand-made cards ready to send out at a moment's notice. Still...I'm not good at sending cards in a timely fashion, and I still like to create new cards for certain events. My kids' birthdays are a great example. :-) Since our youngest recently turned 10, I made these fun owl cards for her invitations. Her actual birthday card was just like them, but without the "Party this Way" element on the front. The owls were made entirely with punches, and the scalloped circle is a Spell-binders die.
