Steps:

  1. Score the orange cardstock to create a card sized 5.4" x 4.1".
  2. Centre and place the owl sticker on the orange sugar paper and gently rub over the sticker with the ruler.
  3. Peel away the transfer tape so that the sticker will remain on the sugar paper.
  4. Glue the twig below the owl sticker, so that it will look as if the owl is sitting on a branch.
  5. With the fold at the left, centre and glue the sugar paper to the front of the card.

  7. Glue a strip of ribbon to the top and bottom of the sugar paper and cut off any protruding edges.
  8. Punch five leaves from the yellow cardstock and use the black pen to add veins to the leaves.

  10. Glue the leaves to the twig. For some leaves, glue them down completely, and for others, use a combination of glue on the one side of the leaf and a small piece of 3D foam on the other side to add some dimension.
  11. Use the golden pen to add some golden highlights to the twig.
  12. Add the wiggle eyes and the bow made from the suede cord.
