Welcome Everyone to Day Two of the "Seven Days of Owls". Today's card is a pedestal card and was made with my Cricut and the Hoot & Holler cartridge. The Owl I used is the number #15 and the cut size is 3 1/2". The first layer or base layer is the new red from Stampin'Up called Cherry Cobbler, This may be my new favorite red. The second layer is black. The third layer is a plaid from my stash that I believe I bought in JoAnn's. I didn't care for the eyes so I simply punched out two small gold circles using a small hole punch.
The base of this card (red) is cut at 4 1/4" X 8 1/2". Then scored at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8" . The base paper(plaid, behind the Owl) is cut at 4 1/4 X 4 1/4". Because this is paper and flimsy I backed it with a piece of the cherry cobbler cardstock cut to the same size The gold cardstock is cut at 4 X 4.
For the sentiment area I cut a piece of gold card stock again at 4 X 4". Then add layer of black at 2 X 3 1/4 and a Layer of 1 3/4 X 3" to stamp a sentiment on. I used a Happy Birthday stamp issued in 1993 from SU, and stamped it in Cherry Cobbler. I popped up the sentiment with EK black pop dots.
Black Pop-Dots? Really?? Who knew? not me. I was so excited when I found them at a local scrapbook shop. Perfect when using dark paper and cardstock.
