An HP Birthday

#stampinup   My darling daughter asked me to make her a Harry Potter card for her friend's birthday. So off to Pinterest I went! I pinned a few punch art cards to give me some ideas. You can follow my board here:

I chose to CASE this card made with the Owl Builder Punch that was created by Sue Lehrer in Minnesota. I see from her blog that she was also inspired by Pinterest!

For my card, I started with a Crushed Curry card base. I added a Basic Black mat and then a Cherry Cobbler panel that I embossed with the Brick Wall embossing folder.

I built my owl by punching three owls from the Owl Builder Punch: one in Whisper White, one in Basic Gray; and one in Basic Black. I assembled the owl using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. (Don't look too closely, or you'll see some glue oozies.) I made the glasses from the larger circle on the Owl Builder Punch. I stuck two Basic Black Circles to a sticky note and then used the 1/4" Circle Hand-Held Punch to punch out the middle. Aren't I clever?

I punched a circle with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and adhered my owl to the circle with Stampin' Dimensionals. I stamped a sentiment from the "Tin of Cards" stamp set in Cherry Cobbler onto a Whisper White strip that I'd flagged with the Banner Triple Punch.

My daughter was so excited and deemed the card "So cute!" (Still waiting for that thank you....)
