Owl Card

Today I want to share an owl flip card that I created.  I used the Sizzix Movers and Shapers Die for the base of the card.  This base makes it easy to add movement to your basic cards.

For this card I used a sheet of paper that has nine squares on it in various colors so that I could cut all of the layers for the owl out of one sheet of paper.  I am cutting an owl from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. 


I loaded the one sheet of paper into my Cricut and moved the blade to the start of the color I wanted to use for each layer.

Because I wanted to inside of the ears and the eyelashes of the owl to be brown, I smudged brown ink on the base so that when I layered the images the brown would show through.


Here is how the completed card looked before it was opened.  The owl fits perfectly into the center circle.


And when you stand the card up, you can see the owl on the front of the card . . . 


and the get well soon sentiment on the back.  I stamped some circles around the sentiment to add more color to the back of the circle.
