Chrissy over at Creating with Chrissy is having another Belli Challenge. Be Square, and this is what I came up with. I also did some punching with my SU punches for the owl. Hope you enjoy. He scanned a little crocked as my scanner was having an attitude problem and it took me 3 hours to get him scanned. So this is as good as it gets until I can figure out what is wrong with my scanner.
Oliver was so much fun to make. I will be making more of him. In the mean time here is the supplies needed and directions:
Choc. Chip card stock cut at 4 1/2 x 9 fold in half to get a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch card base.
Choc. Chip card stock cut at 2 x 2, you will need 4 of these
Creamy Caramel cut at 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
Designer Paper cut at 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 layer on top of the 2 x 2 choc chip pieces. Layer these on top of the Creamy Caramel and then on to you choc chip basic card. Those are my square pieces for the challenge.
For Oliver you will need:
Scallop Circle Punch for his wings done in Choc. Chip
1/2 inch Circle Punch for his eyes done in Creamy Caramel
1 3/8 inch Circle Punch done with Creamy Caramel
Tab punch, punched out of Choc. Chip
Spring Flower Punch done with Pumpkin Pie
2 Rhinestone brads
Once all your pieces are cut out for this just follow Oliver Owl for placement. On the Scalloped Circle I cut in half and then kind of rounded out the wings for the inner part of his wings. His feet punch out one flower in the Pumpkin Pie and cut flower into 1/3rds for his feet, see card for how this was done and then cut a piece off for his beak. Adhere him all together and use pop dots to attach him to the center of the card.
