Hey there! Katie Wolters gave me a really great gift at our Yes Mam! Stamper's Christmas Party. Actually TWO gifts because the card she made was awesome too! She used the Spooky Cat photopolymer set in an out-of-the-box way; using the "hoot owl" to create a "snowy owl" for a winter/Christmas card! The second gift is the gorgeous wood card holder Katie helped her dad make! Simple and versatile, you can set it in the grooved base for a portrait presentation:
Or you can turn it so the holder is landscape! I love Katie's choice of the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. It makes the card look warm and cool at the same time!
Katie heat-embossed the owl with white powder for the "snowy owl" effect. She also added snowflakes and a branch cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies. She used an easy masking technique: tearing a strip of paper to lay over the bottom of the Whisper White layer before sponging the rest with Marina Mist ink. This gives a "snowbank" effect.
Her final touch is a bit of white satin ribbon tied in a simple knot.
