A bit of a fun card to show you today using my much neglected Owl Punch. I love this little owl but he has been pushed to the back of my punches and forgotten about - not any more! I don't know if I'm the only one who does this but I tend to use the newer things and get hooked on those and forget about the older stuff, anyway he's out now so I will explain how this card came to fruition.
The DSP is from Well Worn and reminds me of tree bark so I cut a strip to stick down one side of the card and cut a hole with a circle punch before glueing to the card blank. I lightly sponged inside the aperture with Crumb Cake and a sponge dauber so it didn't look too white and then started assembling my owl. His body and the smallest and largest part of his eyes were punched from Chocolate Chip, with the middle size eye pieces punched in Very Vanilla. His front was punched from another pattern in the Well Worn DSP pack and two branches punched with the Bird Builder punch using Crumb Cake. These were glued into place and a sentiment, punched out with the Word Window punch, was matted onto a Modern Label and positioned on the card. Easy peasy but quite cute!
