Owl Punch Tulip Card

  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter celebrating with family and friends.  We went to Connecticut to be with family and it was so great to see everyone but it is certainly nice to be back in my own house!  We got home late this afternoon, everything is unpacked, the washing machine is spinning away, the weekly menu and shopping lists are finished so now it's time to post another project that we did at my Owl Punch Class last week.

  I was hoping to get this posted either on Saturday or yesterday to wish everyone a Happy Easter but that just didn't happen.  You think that when you're not in charge of cooking or cleaning you'd have all this extra time to do some blogging....nope, I was too busy trying to keep my boys from wrecking the entire state of Connecticut!  That's a time consuming job let me tell you!  On to the card!

  To make the tulip you simply punch 2 of the owl bodies and then trim off the feet (don't worry, he can't feel a thing!).  Then trim one of the bodies following the lines of the ears to get 2 petals.  You'll have a little piece from the center that you can just throw away.  For the stem and the flowers you can cut freehand or I had a little template for my ladies to trace and cut out if they wanted.  Next, sponge all of your edges so you get some dimension.  Adhere one of the tulip petals to the whole piece then adhere the other petal so it slightly overlaps the first petal.

  The base of this card is Regal Rose with a layer of Whisper White on top that was run through the Big Shot with the Framed Tulips embossing folder---fitting huh?  I adhered the punched tulip, stem & leaves and then put an organza fork bow (Click HERE for a fork bow tutorial) over the top.

  A quick little Easter greeting down in the corner and this super fast, super easy Owl Punch Tulip card is finished!  Remember it's not just an owl!
