Today’s card is one I whipped up quickly(ish) following a quick bout of colouring whilst taking part in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin. This is a challenge that Kathy runs several times a year and all you need to do to join in is to colour for 10 minutes a day. I have been a bit hit and miss, as always, with keeping up, but yesterday I did colour these owls and today they flew onto a base card!
So here is today’s card.
The owls are from Clearly Besotted Christmas Hoot and they were released in October but I just didn’t get a chance to use them back then. So today they make their debut! They were stamped onto Neenah 80lb, Copic coloured and fussy cut (Copic numbers listed below). I then fussy cut them out but there are coordinating dies if you wish.
It’s very hard to see in the photos but I dry embossed the Clearly Besotted Snowflake Flurry stencil onto a small white panel and adhered that with DST onto my base card behind my window panel. The window panel was die cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle and also the MFT Stitched Triple Peek a Boo die.
Before popping the window panel onto the base card with foam tape, I did stamp my sentiment from the Christmas Hoot set. Then all I needed to do was arrange my owls over the windows, add some sparkle to their hats, scarves etc and some glaze to their eyes.
I added three little dots after the sentiment as on the inside it reads “…. is you”. And will of course be handed to my beloved on Christmas Day – a bit cutesie but he won’t mind 🙂
It’s a simple looking card but the little extra details like the stencilling and shimmer and gloss kick it up a small notch. And let’s face it, time is running out!
Thanks for stopping by, not long now until the weekend. Hope you can get your crafting on!
