For August's card class we made this Owl "Swing Card" using the Top Note Die with the Big Shot Machine.
Please excuse the poor quality of my pictures, the lighting just wasn't right and the flash made it worse!!
I thought it would be nice to create a card for the younger generation and the Owl Punch is great for achieving this look, but of course by just changing the colour combination it could be recreated for young and old alike, male or female!
So quite primary colours here, Real Red, Marina Mist, Old Olive and some Early Espresso. This Owl is just toooooo cute!!
I showed everyone how you can create the "swing" on your card using the Top Note Die with the Big Shot Machine, too complicated to explain without showing, so if you are interested in learning how, why not book youself a party and I will come along and show you too! At the same time you could earn yourself some free Stampin' Up! products, just ask me how.
Back to the card, we used some of the Marina Mist spotty patterend papers from the "Subtles" Designer Series Paper stack and the circle behind the Owl is from "Woodland Walk" which has two lovely sheets of woodgrain papers, just perfect for masculine cards and projects.
The leaf was die cut using the "Little Leaves" Sizzlits die and the greeting is from the stamp set "Party This Way", which I love, the font is so youthful. We punched this out using the Word Window Punch and layered with a "Modern Label" punch out in Early Espresso cardstock.
