Here is another alternative to using the Owl punch. This is one of the cards we made in my Owl Punch Art Class.
I punched four owl bodies in Basic Black, two used for the penguins, and the extras to cut two pair of "wings" so they could hold hands as it's an anniversary card! :) The Perfect Polka Dots background is meant to resemble a snowy background. I used Not Quite Navy for the card base, Real Red, Whisper White, Bashful Blue cardstock. The sentiment is from the Basic Phrases stamp set.
