Being an owl collector, you know I had to try this one. It makes me smile everytime I see it, so I have it where I can enjoy it whenever!
The body is created with a 2 3/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock, scored at 4 1/4". Using the 2 1/2" punch (120906), punch out half circles from each end to create the "ears" which are actually tufts. (I find it easier to fold the scored area of a project before running through an embossing folder.) Run through the Big Shot (113439) with the Fancy Fan Folder (127751) to create the look of feathers. Fold in half and tape together. The chest is 2 3/4" x 2" DSP and partial circles cut out for the wings. Attach to the very bottom of the body. The eyes are created with the 1 1/4" scallop, 1" and 3/4" circle punches (127811, 119868, and 119873). I also used the White Gel pen (105021) to mark small crescents on the eye. The nose/beak is actually the small heart punch (117193) place under the eyes and over the chest.
You can add a mini candy bar as I did, or another small treat in this cute pocket card.
Enjoy and have a great day! We are enjoying some much needed moisture! Thanks for stopping by!
