Two Step Owl Punch

When I first saw the Two Step Owl Punch I really thought I would not "need" it.  After just a few short weeks I realized that this punch was going to be a must.  It arrived on Wednesday and surprisingly I did not even unwrap it until yesterday.  I have seen so many cute samples on various blogs, Splitcoast Stampers and Stampin' Connection that I didn't really know where to start.  Many of the samples use either the Woodgrain Background stamp or the woodgrain paper from the Woodland Walk DSP package.  I don't have either of those but I remembered that I had bought some of the thin wood sheets a while ago.  I "stained" the wood by spritzing the sheet with Stampin' Mist and then sponging in Early Espresso ink.  I just knew when I bought those sheets that someday I would need them!

I decided that I would adhere my owl to the inside of the card and have it peaking out through a punched out "knot hole" in the card front.  I then decided to use another idea I had seen with these owls - I put two of them on the inside of the card - one peaking out the hole and when the card is opened she is standing on the second owl.  I was chuckling the whole time I was making the card. 

Hope you like the card - it was so much fun to make!
