You're a Hoot!

Hi everyone! This is my very first post as a part of the Dies R Us Design Team and I want to thank you for stopping by!  I hope you will join me and my teamies daily here at the Inspiration Blog; be sure to join in with your own creation on the Challenge Blog!

Since meeting my new next door neighbor, I've adopted her obsession with owls.  I just think they are so cool and SO cute! Since I just got some new dies, I thought I'd make this to have on hand just in case I needed an all occasion card in a pinch (and, honestly, I was dying to use my new Lawn Fawn set!)

What I Used to Make my Card: (A2 size unless stated)
White Card Base
Black Card Panel
Circle Punch
Impression Obsession, Owl, #DIE283-O
Lawn Fawn "You're a Hoot" Stamp Set, #LF605
Die-Versions Whisper Stitched Nesting Squares, #DV-572
White, Yellow, Black and Orange Cardstock
Googly Eyes
Black Ink
Branch (I used my Silhouette CAMEO)

The first thing I did was die cut my owl out of white cardstock.  He's a studious, snowy barn owl so he had to be white; and he needs his glasses to watch for mice! I cut the body and wings out of white card, his nose and feet out of orange card, his glasses out of black card.  I then punched a yellow moon out using a very old circle punch.  I don't have a branch die (yet), so I used my Silhouette machine to cut out a simple branch using brown cardstock.  I adhered my owl, moon and branch to the black card base panel, then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of white card and then die cut out using the stitched square die.

I smile every time I look at this owl and I am hoping this cute little card will give you a smile, too!  Thank you SO much for stopping by, and if you have some time I encourage you to click on the links below and check out all the fabulous creations that can be made with products at Dies R Us.  Fondly, Christi
