Stained Glass Owl


     I love this card for a fall, masculine birthday. I started with a sheet of ivory cardstock. I embossed leaves with clear embossing powder then used a heavy hand to randomly distress with Old Olive, More Mustard, and Crushed Curry ink pads. I then used a tissue to rub over the leaves to remove any ink there. I used my silhouette to cut the vellum into the ovalish (Is that a word?) shape provided in the Gina K Silhouette cut files that accompanies Gina K “Bounty of Blessings”. I centered the owl and branch with gold embossing on the vellum. I then used markers to color the owl on the back of the design. I used 4 tiny brown brads to attach the vellum to the card. For the wood maple leaf embellishment, I inked the wood with distress ink, tied a brown twine bow through the hole, and added it with a glue dot. All stamps used were from the Gina K’s Simple Things and Bounty of Blessings.
