First Christmas Card

My Neighbor was knocking on my door this afternoon and hand delivered my FIRST Christmas card.  What a cute card!!  And I immediately thought......I can do this.  Well at least close, with a more Whimsical look.

First, here is the store bought card......

This card was 4 1/4 X 12 when unfolded.  I cut mine 4 1/4 X 11.  Scored at 4 inches and 9 1/2.  Love the cute little Owl and Sparkly Trees.

 Here is my version, using Cozy Critters Hostess stamps, Peaceful Pines and matching Framelits.  A couple other random Trees in the background.  I used the MINI MISTI to stamp the Branch.  I colored the branch with an Early Expresso marker and stamped several times, then colored the leaves with Garden Green and stamped. 
 The Owl was colored with Markers and the Scarf was stamped again and colored and popped up.
Here is the other side of the card folding in.  I trimmed the trees flush with the Outer edges, but let one hang over the middle of the card.  Super Easy fold and will still fit in your regular envelopes!
