Happy Wednesday! Fall is in full swing in this neck of the woods! It's crisp, cool and getting festive. Halloween starts to take center stage and I was feeling inspired by that. 

I heart owls. You'll find them all over my house. I wanted to make a card using some Ruby Rock-It and an owl cut file.

1. Begin with a card stock base. I used some card making supplies that you can find on the Ruby Rock-It site! I trimmed mine to 4.25" X 5.5". Using a paper from Happy Days (Floral HY40), I cut a mat for the card and adhered it. 

2. Oddly enough, Ruby Rock-It has a very versatile paper in the Graduation Mini Theme! (You're a Star TMD93) I used it to cut a mat to add a layer. I added a piece of washi and a staple. 

3. Using this same paper (You're a Star TMD93), you're going to flip it over to the star side and adhere it to the card front as shown. You're going to distress it at the top and tip the corner forward. 

4. I added tracing paper. I love tracing paper, it is an effortless, yet bold layer. It adds texture and dimension without being overwhelming. Don't worry if your adhesive shows through, it will get covered up with other details. 

5. Assemble your owl. I used Ruby Rock-It patterned papers to create this owl. (If you're wondering about this owl, I used a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.)

6. Add your assembled owl to the front of the card. Using some Ruby Rock-It wood veneer and die cuts, add a little embellishment as shown in the picture. 

7. Using more great die cuts from Ruby Rock-It, some twine and adhesive, you can create a sweet little banner and add it to the bottom of the card as shown.

8. Using some more great wood veneer alphas add the hoot to the top of the card, running it along the owl's head.

As a final step I added some Happy Days droplets to the owl.

Here's the completed card.

THANK YOU for letting me share with you today!!
