Home is where the heart is.

                                                                                      I really enjoy making these tunnel cards but sometime I can't decide just what to put in them. This time I wanted to do something using Stampin' Up products .

I chose the  Banner Blast stamp set and
coordinating punch  from this years
sale a bration catalogue, the hardwood background stamp from the spring and summer supplement catalogue.
 A various colours of ink, the small  single heart punch, the tiny  heart from the owl punch and a  small alphabet stamp set.  (I purchased many years ago from somewhere I can't remember.)
Just to make the outside of this new home card for my son and his family who moved house last weekend.

For the inside of the card I used the owl punch and the leafy branch pieces are from the bird punch both from Stampin' up.

To make the Owl wings,  I punched one scallop circle embossed it using the square lattice embossing folder. Then I cut it into four quarters  and glued two quarters to the back of each owl.

The owls were a little bit too wobbly on the branch and needed a little more support.
To stabilize the owls a little better, I punched a further  two owls bodies and glued them to the back of the owls,  after  they had  been stuck to the branch, so the big branches are sandwiched between the the two layers of the owls  bodies.

The bigger branches were cut free hand  with scissors. I then glued  little bits of foliage to the back branches.

I slotted the branches into the folds at the sides of the card making sure they were not glued into the same fold as I want to create more depth by having one further back than the other. Then I glued them into position.

The background started off as a 5"x7"piece of daffodil delight yellow card stock which I sponged over the top with  red riding hood and calypso coral ink from SU and I left the bottom  section of the card un-inked.
