Wednesday’s Card: Owl Locking Card

Owl Locking Card

Hi All!

I felt like it was about time to break out my owl punch again for something fun. I can’t believe I ever doubted buying this punch! The recipient of the card twists the owl so that it fits within the rectangular box and opens the card. The turning mechanism is really quite simple – a brad between two glued owls.

I also used a new product from the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog called “Core’dinations” cardstock. The inside of the paper (the “core”) is a different color, so when you sand it, a new color appears. Hardly new – just new to Stampin’ Up!. That’s how I created the tree grain.

Oh! I also used something called Sparkly Fluff on the owl belly and the wings of the owl inside. It’s flock with sparkle in it. I tried it using glue and also using tape runner. The tape runner gave the fluff a more even application. The glue made it sort of lumpy. In the video I used glue but then redid it with tape runner after the video (which is what is show in the pic above).

Enjoy and have a great week!!

    What a very clever idea and cute card. I’m a glitter, microbead, and Flower Soft junkie, but I’ve ever seen Sparkly Fluff. I can’t wait to add it to my stash.
