I have four granddaughters and two grandsons. Three of my granddaughters (the older ones) go crazy over anything owl.
My now fourteen year old twin grandchildren had a birthday recently, so I decided to make each of them an owl card. (I know, my grandson had to suffer through an owl card. <g>)
I made an owl using the Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch, which I love, and decorated it up. I wanted the owl to look like it was on a swing hanging from a tree, hence the leaves, but didn’t have a swing stamp.
So… I took some twine, cut a small piece of brown cardboard, which I distressed to make it look like wood, and added the twine as thought it was attached to the wood.
Last but not least, I stamped Happy Birthday. The stamp was again from Stampin’ Up!
