Cozy Critters by Stampin’ Up!


I was back in my comfort zone with this week’s Create with Connie & Mary challenge. It’s a fabulous sketch challenge. Doesn’t that owl from Cozy Critters by Stampin’ Up! look great? I think this stamp set is really versatile and as you can see, can be used for more than just Christmas cards!

I decided to use the sketch for a baby card I needed to make. Having played around with a couple of different embossed backgrounds before I settled on the Woodland embossing folder. This folder has proved popular with my customers and I have sold a few recently, which probably prompted me to dig it out of the drawer for today’s card.

I stamped and then fussy cut the branch to stick over the banner and then positioned the owl over the top. The various sized circles I punched from the polka dot Neutrals Background DSP stack.

So what do you think? Well I really like it – but then I would wound’t I? Lol!

Please do pop over to the Create with Connie & Mary challenge page to see what everyone else has come up with. You won’t be disappointed. They are a lovely talented bunch!
