Today I have a card to share that is made with one of my favorite stamps from the "Whoots" collection. Its the Birthday Whoot Set (Sku #4125). It's such a versatile set, and oh so much fun to color! I colored him in with Prisma Color pencils and Gamsol with paper stumps for blending. (Gamsol is oderless mineral spirits). I paper pieced his cute birthday hat with matching designer paper I used from the Simple Stories "Happy Day" 6"x6" paper pad. Great birthday themed paper pad for cards. The card size 5-1/2" x 5-1/2". I used kraft cardstock as the card base, Cherry Cobbler red (SU!), and white cardstock. I used a ticket corner punch on the corners and a scallop border punch for accents (both from SU!) . I sewed on the first layer and the panel. (I just love the look of sewing on a card). I used Spellbinder round dies to layer my sweet owl, and popped him up with 3-D foam tape. I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink with a sponge to distress around the edges (adds such a nice touch to cards). Three brass brads and an orange ribbon add a few details to top off this card.
