Orchard Harvest Owl Window Cards

You may have noticed that I have a tendency to create elegant, vintage or flowery cards, but I enjoy a little whimsy now and then!  Like today's two cool cards design that we'll be creating at my "Last Thursdays" card class on August 30…

Wood owl - two cool

The new Core'dinations card stock and Woodgrain Impressions Folder create the perfect background for these adorable, punch-art owls!  Meet Oliver and Sebastian! 

Wood owl - birthday

I started with a strip of my favorite pattern from the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper pack—love that color combination!  I used a Lucky Lime card base with a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Border accent (it's actually Raspberry Ripple in that plaid…oops, I just realized!).

I punched the 1-3/4" Circle from the Early Espresso Core'dinations card stock first, then ran it through the Big Shot in the Woodgrain Impressions Folder.  Using the new Stampin' Sanding System, I very lightly sanded the embossed pattern.  Careful!  The Core'dinations card stock will tear easily after being embossed.

Once all the background pieces were adhered to the card front, I punched the complete window from the card base, using the previously punched window as a guide. 

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, inked in Island Indigo, and punched with the Modern Label Punch.

Oliver Owl was punched from Soft Suede card stock, then dressed in a matching Orchard Harvest vest.  I used Crumb Cake for the outer eyes (and should have tried some Googly Eyes for even more personality!).  He also has a More Mustard heart beak and Cherry Cobbler heart embellishment.

When you open the card, Oliver is sitting on a branch from the Bird Punch!  Cute!

Wood owl - sleepy love

Sebastian is a little more laid back…and he's in love, as noted by the Tiny Tags sentiment in Island Indigo ink and punched with the Little Labels Punch.

Wood owl - sleepy love 2

I added some sleepy, half-circle eyelids to him, and he seems older and wiser.  You can really see how awesome the popped up eyes look here!

See, he really is in love!  Awwwww!
