Project Cut Files
Using the cut file, and referencing photos, make cuts using desired card stock.
Emboss Grunge Paper with wood grain embossing folder. Using Distress inks (I used what I had--Walnut Stain & Tea Dye) color the embossed paper to highlight embossing and fill in until it is wood toned. Distress and ink edges with Walnut Stain.
I embossed dots onto the "Hoot" and used a bit of Walnut Stain to highlight & added a bit of ink to the edges.
Assemble the owl. I added Distress Ink to various pieces before assembling to hide the white core of the card stock.
Assemble the branch. I cut extra leaves to fill in. I scored lines in the center of the leaves for a bit of dimension. Punch hearts and adhere wherever you would like them. I then added Glossy Accents to the hearts and let them dry.
Assemble all pieces on the inside of the card. It was a HOOT making this card!
