Well, I did think about printing out "happy owlidays," but I didn't do it.
This is an attempt to turn a non-holiday stamp into a Christmas card. I took the owl on a branch and hung some ornaments from her branch. The ornaments are little die-cuts I bought a bag full of in the post-Christmas clearance a few years ago, either at Michal's or the Dollar Store. I think it was actually supposed to be used like table confetti or something, but I, of course, thought "Christmas cards!"
The ornaments are plain red, so I added some details with a white gel pen just to make them a little interesting. Little hanging ribbons are hand drawn as well. Owl stamp is black-embossed with some details colored in pencil.
This card is for
