I am just loving the new Winter Owls bundle from the September-December 2023 Mini Catalog! The beautiful owl in flight image is perfect to hold a letter to create a card with a little Harry Potter magic. I used the One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper and the letter from the Stamped With Love stamp set. You can watch the Facebook Live Replay of how I made this card on my YouTube Channel below.
Start with a Crumb Cake cardstock card base. Cut an Early Espresso cardstock panel and a One Horse Open Sleigh Designer Series Paper panel. Glue the panels together and then to the card base.
Stamp the owl from the Winter Owls stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Basic White cardstock. Use a Blender Pen to pull the Early Espresso ink from the stamped image to add a little color the owl. Die cut out the owl with the Winter Owls dies. Add the owl to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp the mail box with the letter image from the Stamped With Love stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Basic White cardstock. Fussy cut out the letter with paper snips. Using the silicon craft sheet and a small dot of Pearlized Real Red Metallic Enamel Effects on the letter. Give the enamel a few seconds to set up a bit and then gently squish or tap the enamel with the silicon craft sheet. When dry use glue dots to add the letter under the owl and to the card front.
Stamp the sentiment from the Stars At Night stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Basic White cardstock. Use paper snips to cut the sentiment apart and trim down the sentiment. Then use the Stylish Shapes dies to die cut a stitched banner in the left end of the sentiment (slid the right side up over the top of the banner so it won’t be cut). Use glue to add the sentiment the top right of the card front. Add Wink of Stella to the owl for sparkle. Add Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots under the sentiment.
Add a Basic White cardstock inside panel to write your message. Cut an One Horse Open Sleigh strip for the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through. Stamp the sentiment from the Something Fancy stamp set in Early Espresso ink.
