Patchwork Owl

I love owls and was forced to buy the 5th Birthday Edition of the Hunkydory magazine just to get the free gift of gorgeous owl toppers and coordinating card (I am sure that I am not the only crafter who understands that need!).   It is a good magazine anyway, but not my normal sort of purchase.

I created this card for my sister-in-law's birthday.  I already had the base card in my basket of Silhouette Cameo designs (I regularly cut out more than I need, so I have some samples/spares).  This was cut out on Centura Pearl and is gorgeous (if you would like some of these, then get in touch).  I layered the owl topper onto some of the card that came with it, and then designed an insert with Serif Craft Artist 2 Professional.
