And without further ado, here is the card I created for today! I love how this turned out. It was exactly how I had pictured it in my mind.
My first step was to cut the owl shape from the Core'Dinations cardstock using a piece that measures 4 X 5-1/4". I then embossed that with the Cuttlebug Woodgrain folder and then sanded to bring out the red core. Love it!!! Next I positioned that onto the Riding Hood Red card front and using my stamp-a-ma-jig (yes, I love saying that!) stamped the owl and flourish/branch through the cut out shape using Chocolate Chip pigment ink and clear embossing. Next I stamped the sentiment using Riding Hood Red ink and cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Oval die and matting with another oval cut from the Riding Hood Red cardstock. I positioned it onto the card front and pierced through all layers and added the brown brads. Isn't that little owl just too cute peering out through the owl shaped hole?
Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your comments. I hope YOU win!
