Floating pop-up card with Owl punch



Today is Children in Need day and they’ve all been packed off to school in various levels of fancy costume, so I thought a children’s project would be apt.


I found this cool idea on Pinterest (of course) and traced it back to Julie Davison, who has a handy video tutorial. We actually made a Christmas version of the Mosaic Madness card at a Crafty Friday a couple of months ago but I don’t think I ever took a pic.

Here is my owl version, made to accommodate a gift card inside, tucked between the two grassy layers. 

The card is a lot simpler than it looks. It’s just two pieces of cardstock, sandwiched together with strips of acetate (only one strip in this case) in between. The important thing to remember is that you’ll need to punch doubles of everything you want to be “floating”, so I punched two owl bodies, to encase the strip of acetate.
