Owl Are You Greeting Card

Get into the autumn spirit with this too-cute Owl Are You Greeting Card. This fall, send a greeting to a far-off family member or friend, and remind them that out of sight does not necessarily mean out of mind. It's the perfect way to ask: how are you? This colorful and bright card sports a little owl as the focus point. With the clever use of punched leaves and matching ribbons, this card is sure to make the recipient feel special and loved. If you are looking for card making ideas for fall, craft this precious homemade greeting card this autumn.

Owl Are You Greeting Card

Materials:

  • A4 sheet orange cardstock
  • gold leaf fiber paper from Star Paper Products
  • red and yellow cardstock
  • 3” high black vinyl transfer sticker of an owl
  • pair of 15mm wiggle eyes
  • 0.6” wide red satin ribbon with white polka dots
  • 0.5” wide fall-colored grosgrain ribbon
  • 14mm wide black self-adhesive decorative lace tape
  • thin golden cord
  • 1 small red feather
  • leaf-shaped paper punch
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • pair of standard scissors
  • quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece sized 6” x 8.2” from the orange cardstock and score it piece in half to create a card sized 6” x 4.1”.
     
  2. Cut a piece sized 5.6” x 3.9” from the gold leaf fiber paper. With the fold at the left, glue this to the front of the card.

  4. Add the wiggle eyes.
     
  5. Punch orange, yellow and red leaves from the three cardstocks. Use the leaves to make a “frame” all around the owl. When gluing the leaves, alternate between orange, yellow and red, gluing each leaf so that it slightly overlaps with the previous one.

  6. Glue the red satin ribbon with white polka dots to the bottom of the card. Add a strip of fall-colored grosgrain ribbon above the red ribbon, slightly overlapping the red ribbon. Finally, add a strip of decorative lace where the two ribbons meet. Cut off any protruding edges.
     
  7. Glue the feather below the owl.
     
  8. Make a small bow with the golden cord and glue it on top of the feather.

I find the gold leaf fiber paper (the light orange crinkly looking paper) on this card very interesting as I've always wanted to try making my own paper but didn't know how it would incorporate into my paper crafting...greeting cards, scrapbooking, journals and flip books. This gives me an idea...a glimmer at least. With such bright Autumn colors someone will be thrilled to find this in their box! Thanks!
