Something different

I have moved away from my stamping style with this card. I saw a similar one on an American blog (can't remember where, sorry) a few weeks ago and fell in love with it.

It was quite simple to make... The house is made from Designer Paper layered onto Very Vanilla card and the roof is Creamy Caramel card punched with the scallop border punch, with little dots inked all along the edges with Chocolate Chip marker pen. The owl is from the Forest Friends stamp set is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink onto Very Vanilla, punched out with the 1-1/4" circle punch layered onto Chocolate Chip card punched with the 1-3/8" circle punch. Three buttons from the Designer Buttons from the Mini catalogue placed on the card. The Birthday Wishes sentiment, from the Basic Phrases stamp set is stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, then lines and dots drawn on the card with Chocolate Chip marker. A simple but effective card I am sure you will agree.

Stamps: Forest Friends, Basic Phrases
Card: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel,Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip,
Accessories: Designer Paper, Designer Buttons, Marker Pen (Chocolate Chip)
