Let's use the Leftovers - Card #12 - Retiring 2014-2016 In-Colours


Card #12  in my Series "Let's use the Leftovers". 

How Cute is the little Owl...and I just love the Hardwood Background...one of my Favourites...


 He is so Cute!!!

The cards are 3x3 and I made one in each of the 5 colours from the 2014-2016 In-colours.
T.he Base Card and the Matt are in Crumb Cake Cardstock.

On each of the Matts I stamped the Hardwood Stamp using one of the 5 In-colour Inks so that I had 5 Matts each one stamped in a different ink colour.

I punched a circle close to the bottom Right of each matt using the 1"1/2 Circle Punch.

I punched out all the pieces needed to make the owls with the Owl Punch using...Crumb Cake....Basic Black and Whisper White Cardstock and I also punched out the Owl's Breast using scraps of 2014-2016 In-colour Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Scraps of DSP where also used behind the punched out circle.

I stamped "Happy Birthday" in each of the 5 Colours onto scraps of Whisper White Cardstock.
The Sentiment comes from the Crazy for You Stamp Set.

I just Love the Owl Punch...the Owls are always so cute.
