Hoot 'n' Holler

I finally decided to splurge on a new Cricut Lite cart.

I made this card for my dear friend Audra. Her birthday was last week and we are going to lunch to celebrate tomorrow.


Supplies:

Cricut Lite Cart - Hoot 'n' Holler

Flock

Copic Marker

Ribbon

Pattern Paper

1 3/4" circle punch

Zots

Adhesive (I use Xyron) and Glue Glider Pro

First I cut the owl (3") in ivory paper. Next, I cut the body in pattern paper. Then, I cut the inside of the body (where the flower is) in a solid shimmery paper. I used my 1 3/4" circle punch to cut some of the card background paper to fill in the area behind the flower. Finally, I cut the eyes and nose (not shown in the following pic).


At this point, I assembled the owl.

Next, I used my Glue Glider Pro to add adhesive to the wings and then I added flock (not the ideal way to add adhesive for flocking by the way). I used my Copic markers to color her legs, nose and the center of her eyes. I also used my Copic markers to shadow the edges of the owl.

I used Zots to make her eyes stand out and I also used them to make the owl 3-D on the card.

Inside the card, I used a clear stamp to say "Happy Birthday".
