Owl Die Cut for ATC Swap


Paper Poet, New Westminster is holding a Meet Up to swap Artist Trading Cards this Friday. This is the first ATC I've ever made. Of course I'd use a combo of die cutting and quilling, and somehow express who I am (a combo of die cutting and quilling). What I like the most is how the owl puffs up simply with a folded half moon on the top of his head. Please leave a comment - I really enjoy your feedback.

  2. yes really really cute Cecelia. I made a lime green owl at work out of tissue. Some customers think the colour is too 'out there' but looks like we are on the same page...love the colour of yours.

    also love how you gave it dimension with the folded half moon.

  3. This is just adorable! I love the colors. It's fun and so unique. Fantastic for your first time making an ATC. It's original which is hard to come by.

    1. Thanks Arlene, that's so kind of you to say. Yes, it does feel like there are so many great ideas out there already that's hard to feel original.

    1. Hi Bibiana, thanks for commenting. Yes, I think I've discovered just how expressive owls can be. It's hard to see your avatar because it's so small, but I can just make out your own. I use a digital die cutter called Silhouette SD. I custom design my own shapes in a program called Adobe Illustrator.
