Owl Card

This adorable owl card is the next one that my guests made at the Make & Take. This one was by special request after my sister saw this card that I posted previously.

Stamps: Watercolor Trio
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
DSP: Greenhouse Gala
Accessories: Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Die, Scallop Oval Punch, Two-Step Bird Punch, Two-Step Owl Punch, Needle Tool, Mat Pack, Gold Brads, 5/8" Daffodil Delight Grosgrain ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Two-Way Glue Pen

The card base is Sahara Sand cardstock cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". The next layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" which is adhered to the card front. A piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock was cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and run through the Big Shot in the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Die. A piece of 5/8" Daffodil Delight Grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the panel and adhered to the back of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

The sentiment from Watercolor Trio was stamped in Old Olive ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Scalloped Oval Punch. I'm really going to miss the stamp set Watercolor Trio because the images and sentiments are so wonderful I find I'm using them all the time. If you want this stamp set make sure to order it within the next seven days before it is unavailable for order. Remember the Summer Mini Catalog items are no longer available after August 31st so order what you want soon! The scalloped oval was sponged around the edge with Early Espresso ink and then adhered on top of the ribbon on the Cherry Cobbler cardstock. Then the Needle Tool and Mat Pack were used to punch a hole on either side of the scalloped oval and two Gold Brads are added through the scalloped oval, ribbon, and Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

The Cherry Cobbler cardstock panel is then adhered to the card front. The Two-Step Owl Punch was used to punch the owl body from Early Espresso Cardstock, the large part of the eyes from Crumb Cake cardstock, the middle part of the eye from Whisper White cardstock, the smallest part of the eye from Basic Black cardstock, the heart from Cherry Cobbler cardstock, and the belly from a scrap of Greenhouse Gala DSP. The branch was punched with the Two-Step Bird Punch from Old Olive cardstock. The owl parts were adhered together with the Two-Way Glue Pen. The branch was adhered to the card front with the Two-Way Glue Pen and then the owl was adhered to the card front with a Stampin' Dimensional.

I just love this adorable little owl that you can make with the Two-Step Owl Punch because you can make so many cute expressions with the eyes and the owl is just so darn cute!
