OK, You Win! The Owl Punch, Too!

Stampin Up Owl Builder Punch Just Because Card & Envelope Liner By Mary Fish StampinUp

Many of you felt kind “sorry” for the Owl Punch when it lost by only one vote to the Tree Punch on my recent reader’s choice poll.  See yesterday’s post here.  At your suggestion that I give the Owl Punch “equal time,” I whipped up today’s card.  I hope you enjoy it!  Please share your comments and questions HERE.

  • One of the benefits of the Crumb Cake Medium Envelopes is that they are opaque.  This allows you to save a little designer series paper when you add a liner.

    Oh Yes Mary, the poor Owl! This card is very nice and like you said simple. Thanks so much for sharing. This is one I can do. I have the owl punch, and have never made an owl. Today is the day. Maybe I’ll even use some “Brights”!
    🙂

    • Thanks, Ellen. If you put your mouse (hover) over any of the photos, you should see a “pin it” button in the top left. If you click on it, it will take you to Pinterest and you can save to a board there. Please give it a try and let me know if you have further questions.
