While I was working on those boards I produced quite a few Cricut cuts for items I just couldn't fit onto the boards. With 700 awesome cuts on each CTMH Cricut cartridge, it was hard to choose what to feature and what to leave off.
I had this cute owl leftover when I finished my Artiste Board. I had cut him too big for my board, and also too large for a standard A2 card, so hes on a 5x7 card. Which, if you know me, you know I rarely make a 5x7 card, but he was just too cute to relegate to the odds and ends bin. I paired him with a sunshine I made by embossing a medallion with the chevron embossing folder. I filled the embossed lines with glitter gel, and added a sweet sentiment from a long retired stamp set.
Normally I'm a big fan of googly eyes on owls, but I just couldn't get them to look right on this guy. I think maybe I needed bigger ones than I normally keep in my stash. I added these black sparkle gems instead. I stamped his wings with Smoothie ink. His feathers are Canary cardstock, Smoothie stripe washi tape, and some black chevron tape I got from this cute Etsy store, SpiegelMom Scraps.
I used this week's card sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. The challenge is open now, so hop on over and join the party!
