Owl steampunk style 7x5in with love card - Day 9 of my 365 day challenge

Owl steampunk style 7x5in with love card - 
Day 9 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's challenge (day 9) is this steampunk style owl themed 7" x 5" card which I have made using up some Graphic 45 papers.


How I made this card:-
  • Graphic 45 produced this beautiful owl image some time ago and I had one bit of the paper left so I cut this bit out using a Tattered Lace die.
  • I also cut out the brown cardstock using another Tattered Lace die but felt that it needed some definition so I placed it on some white card and cut a layer allowing for a very narrow border. I edged both with some brown alchohol marker too.
  • | embossed the 7" x 5" inch card at the top and bottom (every half an inch) leaving a space in the middle.
  • The larger panel is pre embossed from Craftwork Cards (A Man's World series) and so I used various brown distress/pigment inks (from Tim Holtz/DoCrafts) to make it look a bark-like and cut it to fit using another of the Tattered Lace dies.
  • I cut a piece of hessian/burlap in half and frayed it a bit more and placed it on the left hand side of the above panel and stuck it to the front of the card - using the bottom embossed line as a guide.
  • I then added the owl panel to the front of the card using some foam pads.
  • Finally, I used the With Love sentiment topper which is from Kanban cards and attached it to some white card and cut round it leaving a narrow border and again used foam pads to raise it from the hessian strip.
And there you are - a really lovely card that you could give for Valentine's day or really for any occasion!
