Owl Builder Punch with Cork - Loving Thoughts

 How cute is this scholarly Owl?! This is made with the Owl Builder Punch from Stampin' Up! and I punched it out of Cork Adhesive Shelf Liner. (This is not the Cork that Stampin' Up! carries - it is much thicker and works in the Big Shot, but not with punches.) I added the sentiment from Loving Thoughts, one of the new sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog that just started last week.

Here's a closer look at the owl, I used the cork for his eyes, too and added a narrow strip of Black card stock behind the largest eye circle to mimic glasses.  The tiny Basic Gray circles on his Black vest are from the same punch. The branch he is perched on is from the Bird Builder punch. I added another narrow strip of Cork to the card front and wrapped the sentiment strip around it with some small Black Brads.

For the inside, I die cut some of the cork with the Alphabet Simple Numbers for the Big Shot and counted 1,2,3 across the Very Vanilla liner.

That owl is so darn cute! Look at him all studious :) I'm going to have to look for some cork shelf liner tho, that looks pretty nifty.
