We Wish You A Merry Christmas Owl Card.

Happy Saturday Cottage Cutz Friends!
Melinda here with you, and today I am sharing a simple but effective Christmas themed card I created featuring the cute Christmas Owl die from the FABULOUS Christmas release!
My card is a standard A4 size: 4.25 x 5.5. This card is a regular side fold card. I thought these Owls were adorable. I wanted to make them in  my favorite So I ended up with this very non-traditional looking Christmas card. 

I started by die cutting all of my pieces in white cardstock. I then proceeded to color the various pieces in. I wanted to keep my little owls on the lighter colored side. So I used shades of gray and light pink-peach for their bodies. I used some chalks for their cheeks. I also added some stickles to the berries and some puffy paint to the little owl with the hat on the left. I added the paint to the rim and the pom pom of the hat and it gave it the perfect texture and dimension.  

I mounted the adorable owls onto a pierced circle mat cut from white cardstock. I used some pretty patterned paper for the mat layer. I then repeated that with the largest pierced circle die cut in white cardstock and to that I added a mat of some rusty pink cardstock. I then used the phrase We Wish You A Merry Christmas from the Merry Christmas tree die. I curved the letters around the large circle die. 

Here is a closer look at the work merry. I colored that in some dark gray marker and it matched the leaves and theme of the card perfectly.

Here is one last look at the completed card. I loved the way this turned out!
