Many Ways To Use An Owl Punch! A Pig Card!

Hey all! I have had an amazingly crafty day today!! This morning i attended Jades 'Owl Punch' card - where she shared a range of ways you can use the punch alternatively to the typical owl creation!!! I just LOVE this punch, it's certainly very versatile!!:
So today i have a card to share with you that we made in Jades class, a Pig card!!:

We started with a 'Whisper White' square cardbase. Using a 'crop-a-dile' we punched holes down the spine of the card and double weaved a piece of 'Early Espresso' 'Grosgrain Ribbon' through and finished it off with a bow.

Next we punched a 'Scallop Circle' from some 'Soft Suede' card and then mounted a '1-3/8 Circle' of 'Whisper White' card embossed with the 'Big Shot' using the 'Square Lattice Embossing Folder'.

The pig was cleaverly created using the 'Owl Punch' (from 'Blushing Bride' cardstock). The head was created from the owl (with its feet chopped off). His eyes and nose also created using the punch. The pigs trotters were created from the owls belly (turned upside down). We glued all of this into place - using 'dimensionals' to create a 3D effect. We added in some detail using a 'Basic Black' 'Stampin' Write Marker'. Here's a close-up of the little porker:

Finally we stamped the sentiment from the 'All In The Family' stampset, which we handsnipped to create a banner.

I loved this punch already - but now utterly obsessed with this punch!!! I didn't realise how many things you could do with it!!

After the class i stayed and crafted with Jade all afternoon - coming up with even more 'Owl Punch' cards and lots more - i can't wait to share these with you! Thanks Jade for a completely enjoyable day!
