Owl-y Flowers - love it!

Well, I'm excited to say that I have a card to post every day this week!  I was busy this weekend, as card making never feels like 'laboring' for me.  It was a perfect time to enjoy myself by making cards for my sweet daughter and to get started on Christmas Cards.  I know... Christmas, in September?  I make ALOT of Christmas cards, as you will see in the coming months!

First, I had so much fun making these large flowers out of the owl punch a few weeks ago.  The flowers have been sitting on my desk, just waiting to be glued to a card:
Each 'petal' is created by cutting a 'v' between the owl ears.  Then cut off the feet (sorry, that sounds so cruel - lol).  Fold the owl lengthwise and pinch the bottom.  This gives you a point from which to fold, and also brings the petals tips up a bit.  From your bottom crease, fold each edge in until they touch.  I then glued these to the large scallop punch of pear pizzaz cardstock.  The center is a 1/2" punch of Garden Gala dp adhered to a build-a-brad.  I had fun mixing the Garden Gala and Razzleberry Lemonade (retired) design papers, too!  My daughter described this card as "cheerful."  I'd have to agree!

I have another example of owl flowers tomorrow using the Noveau Chic paper and one of the new stamp sets.  Hope you'll stop by!  Until then, make it a Stampin' Day!
