Hey everyone!

Today is the fifth and final day of the March release from Neat & Tangled, and it ends with another fabulous stamp set!

Day 5 is for Giving Tree, a 6×4″ stamp set that includes some cute owls, tree stumps and branches.

Here’s my card:

I began by creating a background on an A2 sized card base, using the largest tree branch image from the set. I stamped it repeatedly with a rainbow assortment of Distress Inks onto the top half of the card and set aside to work on the next element.

I took a piece of white card stock and partially die-cut a circle from it so that it could be foam mounted to the card base as one continuous piece. This is fairly easy to do with a circle die and there are a few videos on YouTube to show you how its done 😉

I stamped the largest owl and a supporting sentiment onto the partially die-cut panel with black dye ink and mounted to the card base, allowing the vibrant background to peek through the top.

I couldn’t resist adding some googly eyes to the owl’s face! To finish, I adhered a couple of coordinating sequins to the background.
