Owl Wish

Whoooo says you have to use only Christmas (or what is traditionally thought of as Christmas) stamps for your holiday cards? I love the Yoo Hooo! stamp from FireCracker Designs and I wanted to pair it with this fun wood grain and striped patterned papers I found in the Eskimo Kisses line from Basic Grey!

Owl Christmas

well what do you think? Does it work?  I thought so and I hope that the family I am sending it too will love it just as much :)

The sentiment is one half of one from the Christmas Phrases set and it is finished inside the card “a very merry Christmas brings.” I just inked the top and stamped it on the blue paper then cut it out to mount on the front of the card with a couple of Two Scoops Basic Grey brads. Cool how you can mix BG lines and they still coordinate isn’t it! Then inside I just inked the bottom half and stamped it about center on the card.

I love the card. The owl makes a good image for the card. Guess I need to think off the wall too.

It's beautiful card, but it would only look Christmassy at Christmas - it's that kind of card.
