Cardz TV Christmas in July Challenge #1

Cardz TV is having a Christmas in July Challenge to make a Christmas card using a hand stamped, digital stamped or Cricut cut animal.  Shown above is the front of the card I made.  Here is the inside of my card:

I used my Gypsy to make the cuts, and here is a picture of the screen:

I used the Cricut Lite Hoot 'n' Holler cartridge to cut the owl (owl12 in the brochure) and the hat (hat2 in the brochure).  I cut the owl and hat at 2 inches.  The cut behind the owl is from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge using the oblong shape and shadow on page 47. This cut was at 3 1/2 inches.  I put the own on a CTMH action spring, so it's interactive.

I used Recollections (Michael's brand) smooth cardstock as the base of the card (4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches), all cardstock used on the owl and Santa's hat, the shadow of the shape behind the owl and the white on this inside.  The patterned paper on the front and inside is from a Christmas kit I bought from QVC.  The red ribbon on the front is American Craft glitter ribbon is Rouge. The banner and sentiment is CTMH (sentiment is from the Christmas Cheer stamp set) and I used the CTMH Archival Black Exclusive ink pad to stamp the sentiment.  The rhinestones on the hat and banner are Queen & Co. Classic Red rhinestones.

I hope you like my card.
