Bah Humbug!


Not everyone gets into the Christmas spirit, so I've made this card for those who need a smile during the Christmas season :) The Crafter's Companion Die'sire die was a find at Tuesday Morning for a ridiculously low price, and I couldn't resist adding it to my collection. I used the SU! owl & bird punches to make the owl, adding a Santa hat done with the Tim Holtz crazy bird accessories stamp set. I punched 1 more eye circle from kraft, cutting it in half and using the pieces as upper eyelids to make the owl appear droopy-eyed. The background was embossed with the SU! softly fallen ef, and the snowflakes were done with a MS punch, adding puffy stickers to the centers that came in a blog candy prize package. (thanks again Alice)
The die-cut sentiment was placed on a SB labels 25 die, which was lined with a gold paint pen before die cutting.

I'm sharing this in the following challenges:

October Rudolph Days - always a Christmas theme


Thanks for stopping by, and for all you "bah humbuggers" out there - just keep smiling :) There's a card out there for everyone!

Cute! Perfect card for Rudy Day, and what a super find at Tuesday Morning. Lucky you. It looks nifty over the layers of the S/B mats, and of course that little droopy eyed owl - goes so great with the sentiment. TFS & Hugs
