Viewmaster card

This card was part of a class teaching cards that move. I love the cute little owls in this little Hero arts set!
Viewmaster card
Cut list:
1 – 8 ½ x 4 ¼ - Wild Berry Bazzill
1 – 4 ¼ x 4 – Bo Bunny – Honeysuckle
1 – 4 x 4 – white cardstock
1 – 4 x 4 – photocopy paper

Other Supplies:
Large Circle Nestabilities – largest circle
1 3/8” circle punch
Hero Arts sparkle clear You Hoo Owl stamps
Crop-o-dil or 1/8” hole punch
Black Stazon
1 brad

126 – Olive
969 – brown
992 – tan
025 – yellow
899 – chestnut brown
N79 – grey brown
553 – blue

General instructions:
1 – Using a pencil, X the back of the Honeysuckle print piece and trim down to 4” x 4”.
2 – Cut 2 circles out of the 2 white pieces using the nestabilities and the cuttlebug.
3 – Set the cardstock circle aside and fold the copy paper circle into quarters and then into eighths. Use the hole punch or crop-o-dile to punch notches at each of the fold lines. Add one notch between each of the fold lines ( I just eyeballed it!) Use this as a template for the cardstock circle and punch notches into it. Pierce a hole into the center.
4 – Stapm the owls onto the cardstock circle and color with tombows. Set aside.
5 – Using the X on the back of the printed piece as a guideline, punch a large dip on the side that was trimmed (you can tell which side was trimmed because the pencil lines won’t go to the corner, they will go to the side). Turn a quarter turn to the right and punch out the hole for the owls to peek through.
6 – Fold the wild berry piece in half to create the card base. Lay the printed piece on top and punch out the dip into the front of the card and pierce the center hole through for the brad.
7 –Using a brad, layer the printed piece with the owl stamped piece. Turn over and attach adhesive to the corners. Push brad through the hole in the card front, straighten the layers and adhere firmly. Push open the brad back.
8 – Stamp “You Hoo” onto the front of the card and “Friends Forever” on the inside.
