Owl Twisted Easel Card


I love the colour purple & I'm growing to like little owls.  I thought this little guy was cute & my craft girls wanted to learn to do a twisted easel card so I decided to make them up as a kit for them.

I cut a 11"x 8.5" as the base card then scored it at 5.5" & again on the diagonal on the left 5.5" square.  I used 4 of the Close To My Heart Cricut cartridges for the Owl, Fancy Square, Branch & the Happy Birthday.  In the Cricut Design Space I laid them all out & cut the whole thing on my Cricut Explore.  I'm learning the software so if I can cut it all out (including the base etc.) then that's more practice for me.  The little Owl was all cut & then paper pieced together & I used 3d foam to build him up a bit & again for the Sentiment so it is then used as a stop for the card when opened.  I had alot of fun doing this card, I wanted to do one with just cut files & no stamping, I inked around the Owl to make him stand out a bit more & inked over the little butterfly & finished him off with some bling, I had to get that in somewhere, I just love to put bling on everything.

Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge Z3170.
