Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 154...dies or punches
Please check out our home page to read Diane's thoughts on this chosen verse and to see the rest of the creations by our talented design team!
For my card I used dies and punches in combination. As long as I have owned this little owl punch from Stampin' Up, I have never used it yet. I pulled it out for this challenge as I need a birthday card for my middle daughter and she loves owls. I was going through some of my older cards recently and realized I hadn't done a shadowbox card in a while; the owl is perched on a branch outside of his home in the tree. The cardstock I used is cream colored although it comes out very white in the photo. The interior I used kraft.
I used a 1 1/2" circle punch to make the hole for his tree home and a petite scallop circle spellbinders die for his wings. I have a wee flower punch from I don't know where that I used for the pom pom on top of his party hat, and I combined the owl with the Everyday Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink so he could have a bouquet of balloons to hold. Thanks for looking and we hope you can play along this week.
