YAY, I was finally able to get my computer & phone to play nice with each other so I could post the card I made. I've been trying to figure out at least 1 idea for cards from the sets I got through pre-order & now am trying to work through my 2nd order of the Holiday Catalog.
For this card, I started with a Soft Suede Card Stock base that I embossed using the Big Shot & the Woodland TIEF. Next, I stamped the owl from the Still Night Stamp Set onto Whisper White Card Stock using Early Espresso Ink. To color the owl, I used Light/Dark Crumb Cake, Light/Dark Soft Suede, Light Mango Melody, Light Granny Apply Green, Light Black & Ivory Stampin' Blends, I got the color idea from Chris Slogar's blog but I added the ivory color to the eye area instead. I also used the retired White Signo Gel Pen to put the white dot in the eyes. After I was satisfied with the look I used the Big Shot & the Night Owl Thinlets to die cut the owl, branch, pine boughs & the sentiment box out. I then adhered all but the sentiment box to a Whisper White Card Stock square with Tombo Multi Glue, then adhered it to a square of Early Espresso Card Stock. To finish off the card, I added a sentiment from the Lift You Up Stamp Set using Early Espresso Ink to the sentiment box, then used a dauber to sponge around the sides.
