Cute Lucky Owl

I made this card for a friend in another state who I think will enjoy receiving the cheery lucky owl for St. Patrick's Day. I was inspired by 3 challenge blogs:

I just discovered called "Cut It Up" that requires you use either die-cuts or digital cutting files to create your card. This week's Cut It Up challenge #195 is to include the color green. I think I maxed out on both the cutting and the green!!!

Double Trouble Challenge Blog #51 has a three-part challenge: 1) Let's Go Green!, 2) Include something with gold (I INCLUDED gold!), and 3) Participate in this week's partner blog.

Heart2Heart March 2020 "Put Your Green On!" challenge.

All the rectangles on the card were die-cut using Stampin' UP! (SU) dies, cardstock and papers. For a list of those I used, please refer to the supplies table below.

The cutting file is one of the sweet SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) files from "Amazing Craft Bundle" set. The file is called "Cute Lucky Owl". The entire bundle is $8 for 1,500 cutting files. The variety in the bundle is truly AMAZING! All the cut elements were glued starting from the bottom of the gold pile to the top of his jaunty little hat using Tombow liquid glue.

After I had him glued together, I used Ranger White Enamel Accents to put white glints in his eyes.

I am rating the difficulty level of this card as a "3" out of a possible "5" because of the number of colors it require and the number of pieces that were used to build the sweet little owl. I estimate it took me 3 hours to cut and assemble the entire card.

  1. So glad you found us, Donna, and I hope you stop by often! Your owl card is super adorable. She looks confused as to what all those coins are for!

    My goodness, 1,500 svgs! That'll take some time to make them all! :)

    Thanks for sharing your Green with Envy project with us at Cut it Up!


    1. I look forward to your next challenge, Evelyn!

  2. Oh my, I love this...what a great SVG fact I have purchased the Bundle and what a great deal for so many files. Beautiful job on layering your pieces and the accent in the eyes is right on...adorable and perfect St. Paddy's Day Card. Asking a favor of you for some help on understanding the Bundle and access to the SVG file...I have already downloaded it and need help. I have sent a friend request on Facebook so that we could communicate...please join me.

  3. How cute, Donna! Perfectly layered and that green patterned paper on the vest and as background adds movement to your design. Your owl's face is so sweet, too. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble #51.

    1. Thank you, Melanie! He was fun to do, but gosh there were a lot of pieces to cut and assemble!!! I think the card will really cheer up my friend.

  4. Love your owl!! What a great card! Thank you for joining us at Heart 2 Heart!
