Pink Persimmon Birthday Card using an Owl


Good Morning Paper Crafters.  I have a fun card to share with you today using "Wise Old Owl" by Pink Persimmon.  Isn't he seriously cute!  What's so much fun about this set is that all the parts of his body are separate.  So, you can stamp the body, head, and wings different colors.  I paper peiced the eyes.

One of the reason's that this old owl is so wise is because he wears so many hats!  teehee.  You can add a crown, a party hat, or a graduates cap.  So this set would be great for a birthday card, Father's Day card (with the crown and sentiment "dad you rule" or maybe "king for a day"), or graduation card. 

It also comes with a variety of sentiments :
"What a hoot"
"Whoo loves you?"
"Thank whoo?"
"Guess whoo's a wise old owl?"
and "See you later owl-igator!"

I told you it was a cute set!
Have a great day!

Project Details

Stamps : "Wise Old Owl" by Pink Persimmon
Patterned Paper : Teresa Collins "Celebrate" line (back side of "Stars" for the verbage paper)
Cut out 3 stars from one side and then use the verbage side for your background
Ink : Distress Ink Broken China, VersaFine Crimson Red
Border Punch : Fiskars
Deckled Scissors : Fiskars

I stamped the body first, then the wings, on white cardstock.  I had to practice a couple of times to get used to how to line the wings up with the body.  Then I added the head, paper peiced the eyes and hat.  You have to stamp the branch on the patterned paper first, then the owl body with branch on white cardstock, then trim the owl body and line it up over the branch you stamped on the patterned paper.
