Rose Blossom Garden – Page 75

My father died in 2008. This was a great opportunity to use Cricut Artiste page 75 – Father’s Day key to remember a few things about my father. I used the 3 D object to cut out the box pattern for the owl’s body. I used both Accent One keys to cut out all the feathers for the owl. I used the Accent 4 and shift key to cut out the owl’s wings and Accent 1 and shift key to put the open feathers on the wings. I punched the feet out with the 1 1/4 and 2 inch Close to My Heart punches. The eyes are made from CTMH glitter buttons and green epoxy gems. The cards inside the box and the bottom row of the owl is Accent 2 and shift button on the owl! What do you think of the box and with cards inside? The card uses CTMH slate cardstock with the CTMH slate ribbon as a strip down the card.  The owls are from the CTMH CC Valentine stamp set and the branch the owls are sitting on are from CTMH Pear and Partridge Christmas Card making Workshop on the Go set! The You’re Sweet is also from the CTMH CC Valentine stamp set and punched out with the CTMH 1 1/4 inch punch. The accents on the box are the CTMH Artsian gems and the white part of the cards are accented with CTMH silver glitter!DSC00769 DSC00770 DSC00771

My father always took my sister and I out in nature every weekend to learn about the birds and wildflowers.  He was a lovely individual and is my favorite dad always. I think my sister would say that he would enjoyed receiving the box and cards and would have wanted to know about how I made it.

Thanks for stopping by! What do you think? I always appreciate your feedback and comments.

    Very nifty owlie, Pam, and yes, Dad would have wanted a step-by-step explanation of how it was made. He probably would have wanted to dissect the Cricut too!
