Peek-a-Boo Owl- cQc#27


Arielle had a very fun color combo this week over at the ColourQ. The colors were Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede and Whisper White. Just like she said, these colors were fun to work with!




Here is what I came up with! I took a piece of Soft Suede card stock and stamped the Woodgrain background stamp onto it using Soft Suede classic ink. Next I tied a piece of 1/2" Polka-Dot Soft Suede ribbon around the card. The "hi" is die cut from the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Timeless Type Alphabet Junior medium sizzlits die. I used the 1 3/8" circle punch to punch out the hole for....owl to peek through! I used various Stampin' Up! punches to make the owl.

This is the inside of the card, so when the recipient opens the card they see the owl sitting on his branch!

I had fun making this card and working with these colors! Thanks Arielle!


Thanks for looking!

Very clever using the tab punch for the owls face!
