High Flying Owl!

Hi everyone! I'm filling in for Stephanie Barnard today with a shaped card project that features the
57694 Sizix Bigz Owl #2 from new Happi Baby die line from Dena Designs and the 657581 Sizzix Framelits Die/stamp set Kites from Stephanie Barnard. These dies all worked together so perfectly!

I grinned the whole time I was putting this card together.  I Love it when a plan comes together. :)


  1. Cut Sunflower cardstock 10" x 5”. Score and fold at 5". 
  2. Line up the fold of the card so it is just under the point of the ears on the die cut line.
  3. Cut patterned paper for the owl's body and wings. Sponge edges with brown ink.
  4. Adhere patterned paper to the front of the card.
  5. Die cut eyes from white and black cardstock. Attach to card.
  6. Stamp and die cut kite from patterned paper twice.
  7. Die cut cloud from white cardstock twice. Attach one cloud behind kite (I used Scotch tape).
  8. Add wire with Scotch tape to cloud and kite with Scotch tape. I bent the wire so it would go behind the cloud and kite. Cover the back of die cuts with extra cloud and kite die cuts (to cover up the wire).
  9. Attach wire to owl under where the left wing will be placed with a little piece of tape. Adhere wing over wire, attach other wing.
  10. Die cut kite tails from purple cardstock. Attach to card.

Pin It!
