Shaped Owl Card

So I was admiring all the shaped cards that I have seen lately and really wanted to try my own!

I had purchased the tutorial to make the owl card some time ago but hadn't made it as I was still not feeling very confident about MDS. Over the last few weeks though I have made a real effort to learn, even if by trial and error!! So when I pulled out the instructions I was a bit disappointed to see the instructions used the Silhouette cutter. Anyway, cutting what could be a long boring (lol!!) story short, I just figured out how to use with Cricut and SCAL instead! Now I wish I had written some notes!

So I followed the instructions for using the owl in MDS, imported into SCAL and made my owl card base. I also used this process to cut his cute belly. Or is it a she??

I used punches for his eyes and heart, using my white pen to colour the glint in his eye. I made a scrolled flower using Crystal Effects to hold it together and a little birthday banner to match.

So here's what I used:
Stamps: Postage Collection
Inks: Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Stawberry Slush, Basic Black & Soft Suede CS, Subtles Patterned DSP
Accessories: Toothpick & White Signo gel ink Pen, Heart & Circle Punches
Cutters: Cricut, Two Step Owl Punch - Digital Download - Item #122153

Sadly I never got to send this card, so it's happily sitting on my desk waving its little banner at me until he goes off to send his owly birthday wishes!
