  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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

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!
