I decided to turn my Hero Arts Big Eyes Owl into a holiday Owl.
I stamped the owl once in green and a second time in blue to pull in the colors from the flag. I cut out the eyes and nose and paper-pieced them onto my design (using foam tape behind the eyes for a bit of dimension). Next I made a Santa hat by using scalloped & oval die cuts for the brim & a folded triangle for the hat. I added a fuzzy pom pom to complete the design.
I used a round Snowflake and pearl to create a holiday ornament to dangle from my tree branch ... and managed to get a red ink smudge at the right side of my card. I decided to use it as an *embellishment opportunity" by adding the dimension of some punched leaves to cover my *oops*.
I used a sketch from Hero Arts for their Holiday Card and Die Cut themes for October. I finished with a sentiment from Lower Case Greetings ... You could read it as ho ho ho ... or perhaps hoo hoo hoo.
