I saw this cute and adorable little wise paper punch owl on Papercrafter's Library recently and decided it was the perfect little piece for a card front! It was pretty big, though, so I didn't want to add much more to the card and take away from the punch pal, so I used my same sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches to create this card. I just flipped mine counterclockwise and made it a vertical card.
On my card I used the retired Night and Day DSP paper I got on the clearance rack, Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Whisper White, and So Saffron.....and a whole slew of punches!
In addition to the sketch, I decided to take on the Paper Trailmakers Challenge Blog had a paper piecing challenge. I thought that pretty much went perfectly with my card, so I decided to use some paper piecing on the inside of the card. I used the retired Congrats, Grad stamp set on the inside. I cut some copy paper and stamped another little owl image in the bottom. I colored the body with my Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and So Saffron Stampin' Write markers.For the paper piecing portion, I decided to stamp the little cap on the opposing side of the DSP scraps from the card front. I cut out the owl's hat as well as a few others - it added just enough oomph to the card to make it perfect for our grads on Senior Day this Sunday! Now....one card down.....10 to go!
