Hoo’s Been Naughty or Nice

Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I’m up on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog bringing you the Daily Post today. First, I want to start by telling you that my inspiration for this card comes from Angry Birds. I guess this is my take on a Christmas-themed Angry Bird. Only one problem, this Lil’ guy is way too cute to be angry! He is naughty, though. I love the Owl-idays Stamp Set from Craftin Desert Divas, too much cuteness. 


I say it every time; this card is simple to create. A little die-cutting, stamping and coloring. And I always say let your paper do the work for you especially for backgrounds. I admit once in a blue moon I can create a watercolor background that I’m happy with and I sincerely wish I could knock them out every time but the fact is, I can’t! So I rely heavily on patterned paper to do the work for me.

4.25″x 5.5″ card base – 8.5″ x 11″ #110 cardstock scored at 5.5″ and cut at 4.25″ to create to top fold card bases
