Look Whoo


This is my last card for the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew.

CCREW0811HF, CreativeCrew, SUO or SUM – Holiday Focus:

You had to use this sketch, the paper piercing tool and choose 3 colours from this selection : baja breeze, daffodil delight, early espresso, night of navy, pear pizzazz, poppy parade, rich razzleberry, so saffron, soft suede, whisper white.


It was also meant to be for Friendship Day, Sister’s Day or Family Day which are celebrated on the first Sunday in Aug.

Well I did something a little different and made a card for my daughter’s 10th birthday instead, which just so happened to be on the first Sunday in August too!



I decided to make a little owl brooch for her and attach it to the birthday card insert.

All you do is punch a few owl bodies out (6 I think?) and glue them on top of each other (of course decorating the top one).  Then I put crystal effects over it and left it overnight to dry.  The next day I put a brooch back on the other side, again using crystal effects to adhere it and put crystal effects all over the back too.

I just used my crop a dile to punch 2 little holes on the insert so that I could attach the brooch .


Ingredients :

Stamps : none

Card : white, espresso, baja, pear, saffron, razzleberry, brights dsp stack

Ink  : old olive

Other : big shot, polka dot ef, button, little leaves, owl punch, crystal effects, timeless type alpha, paper piercer, white gel pen, linen thread, brooch back
