Wide Eyed Owl

A few months ago I saw a card in Paper Crafts magazine that I thought was a very cool and a good way to use little pieces of designer series paper..... if you're like me you can't stand to throw away even the smallest piece and you save them all, until one day you have so many of those little scrap that they start to over flow your work space and you're forced to either use them or else they will take over!....Wow, I might need a DSP scrap intervention!  Anyway, here is the card.

Isn't this fun. Owls have been "big" over the last couple of years and I'm not really sure why.  I think it's just one of those things that comes around every 50 years or so, kind of like fashion.  I remember as a kid my Mom collected owls and she had everything under the sun with an owl on it, but her jewelry was the best.  I wonder if she still has any of that stuff, if she does, she'd be right back in style! 
This card was pretty easy to made.  The 4 1/4" x 11" card was folded in half and then cut on the top using the Adorning Accents Edgelit, making sure to cut only the center part of the fold.  The back of the eyes were made using large circle and scallop punches.  The center of the eye was created by adding a 1/2" punched circle to the center of one of the Natural Designer cute!  The nose is the Pendent punch.  I used scraps of DSP from Orchard Harvest glued to a paper and then I cut with the Adorning Accents scallop edge before adding it to the front of the card.  Stamp a greeting and wa-la you've created a super fun card and used up some of those dreaded little pieces of paper you couldn't bare to to throw away!
