I've made a couple of cards recently, here are some pics. The one below is from a free owl template available at Blue Sky Confections.
The paper is origami paper, I've got it in three different colours, this lovely pink one and also yellow and green. My thing for cards at the moment is silhouettes using this origami paper - elephants, angels, T-rex.
I think the T-rex one needs more definition, so I might go around the edge of it with a gold pen, which is what I did with Queenie below.
