Birthday Owls - February Make and Take 4

Are you ready for some more owl fun with the Owl Punch? I hope so, because the card I have to share with you today has two of them! But these aren’t your average owl punch owls. These were stamped first with the fabulous Sale-A-Bration set Punch Bunch that you can get for FREE when you order $50 of wonderful Stampin’ Up product.

To get your very own owl stamp click the shop Stampin’ Up button on the top of the right sidebar, find $50 worth of toys that you want, and then enter in 121847 for wood mount or 123211 for clear mount. Anyway here is the card:

Stamps: Punch Bunch
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Scraps of Old Olive, Whisper White, More Mustard
DSP: Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Basic Grey
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Two-Step Owl Punch, Scalloped Square Punch, Two-Step Bird Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Two-Way Glue Pen.

The card base is Not Quite Navy cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”. A piece of Elegant Soiree DSP was cut at 3 ½” x 4” and was adhered to the top portion of the card. Next a piece of More Mustard cardstock was cut at 2 ½” x 4” and one long side was punched with the Scallop Edge Border punch. Another piece of DSP was cut at 2” x 4” and adhered on top of the scalloped More Mustard cardstock. This panel was then adhered to the card front.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock one owl was stamped in Soft Suede ink and another owl was stamped in Basic Grey ink. Both were punched out with the Two-Step Owl punch. Also two hearts were punched from scraps of More Mustard cardstock with the Two-Step Owl punch. The leaves were punched from scraps of Old Olive cardstock with the Two-Step Bird Punch.

The leaves were adhered to the card front with the Two-Way Glue pen in the locations that you want the owls to be. The hearts were adhered to the owls with the Two-Way Glue pen. Then the owls were adhered to the card front.

The greeting from Punch Bunch was stamped in Not Quite Navy ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Scalloped Square punch. This was adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
