I did manage to use up a little of my card stash. There is something very appealing about owls. They come in so many shapes and sizes but as long as you give them big eyes somehow they always look right.
Finally an owl for Christmas. I've had this gorgeous shiny backing paper for ages but hadn't thought of a way to use it.I cut the owl, tree and stocking from the scrap card that came from the aperture so they match the surround exactly. The sequin eyes match the backing paper and make it a very Xmassy card.
