Hoot, Hoot, Hoot-ray for Dreamweaver Dies!

Playing with the Dreamweaver dies this month has been such a HOOT! Just to prove it, my card today features our new Owl Dies itsy bitsy babies, perching on the window created by the largest of the new Oval Dies. The card base for this was machine embossed and StriƩ-inked with the Pinwheel Checkerboard stencil pattern before stamping the cute sentiment from Woodware's Clear Magic Owl Christmas set.

 The inside panel adds depth by layering the Treeline Die, cut from patterned paper, over the top of another patterned paper...all coordinating with the patterned papers from my little owl babies. Here's a tip...trace the outside edge of the owl die on contrasting cardstock and cut out. It is a bit of fussy cutting, but a fairly simple shape to cut. Then you can just adhere the paper pieces from the die cuts. Oh, and another you die cut each baby owl, place each tiny piece on a strip of removable tape to keep them together, and doing this with each owl. This makes it soooo much easier to keep all the pieces together. It is also really helpful to place a panel of Double Sided Mounting Paper on the back of the panel of patterned paper that you are cutting your owls from BEFORE die cutting them. Just peel off the adhesive backing and adhere each piece without dealing with messy glues.

Before you move on to the team's blogs this week, just thought I'd share a silly riddle for you...

Where do you buy baby owls? At the OWLET store!! Hee hee.

OMG, I saw your card and immediately fell in love with it! The window, the stencil behind the window on the inside of the card and, best of all, the little owls perched in the window. Classic Pam style fun!!!

What a great idea to trace the outside of the owl die! I will definately be using that technique!
