Now for today’s card- I used the Spooky Cat stamp set to create a cute Halloween card -or in this case, Owl-oween!
My card design was inspired by this week’s sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #307
To create my card, I started with a base of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, added a panel of Early Espresso, and then a Very Vanilla layer that I embossed with the Woodland Embossing folder. I used an aquapainter to add some flecks of Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso.
I used two Layering Circle framelits to create a ring, and attached it to a circle of Very Vanilla cardstock. I embossed this entire piece with the Softly Falling Embossing folder – wanted to get the look of craters on the moon!
I layered the circle over a piece of Burlap ribbon and attached to my card front. My branch was cut from the Seasonal Layers thinlets – I love these thinlets – gorgeous leaves, the super cute Adirondack chair, flowers, snowflakes, etc. It’s such a versatile set. A must have!
I stamped my owl in crumb cake ink and stamped her eyes with Early Espresso ink. I used Pumpkin Pie ink for her beak and feet. I cut her out and sat her on the branch.
I finished the card with a linen bow and some Black Rhinestones.
