Owl Cards (2)

I did manage to use up a little of my card stash. There is something very appealing about owls. They come in so many shapes and sizes but as long as you give them big eyes somehow they always look right.

I made this one for a friend who is always sewing so the background paper is scissors and the owl is made with fabric effect papers. The eyes are indian shisha embroidery mirrors.
Owls always look wise so who better to bring a wise saying?
Loved these eyes. They are paper clips. The feet are made from twisted wire.
This pretty pink and green owl is made from a set of papers that were a free gift from 'Simply Homemade' magazine. It started life as a collection of printed hearts. I trimmed one to make the head and pencilled in the edge stitches. The button eyes and the ribbon bow were part of the same coordinating set.

Finally an owl for Christmas. I've had this gorgeous shiny backing paper for ages but hadn't thought of a way to use it.I cut the owl, tree and stocking from the scrap card that came from the aperture so they match the surround exactly. The sequin eyes match the backing paper and make it a very Xmassy card.
