So of course, I thought this was an occasion for a card! I dimly remembered a card that flings confetti at you as you open it - now that's a good idea. I looked it
up, and found some good info here. A fun afternoon of flinging confetti around my craft room ensued - once I had the method down, I worked on a pretty front. Which was not too hard, once I decided it needed to have two owls (naturally).
The girl owl has a bridal veil. Awww. And some sparklies too. Awww.
Here's Craig opening the card. Sadly he's a nice young man, and didn't shriek at all.
I modified the method, and used some nifty tools I have. Here's a photo of the flinging mechanism, which was pretty effective. Confusingly, I've photographed it in the "already flung" position, but loaded with confetti. By now it would have been all over you. Ah well, it was late, and I was giving the card the next day.
If all goes well, I'll be trying this card again at Stamp Club this week, and taking a few photos of *my* slightly varied method, so I can share.
