Christmas in Feburary Part 7

The next set in this kit (Cute Christmas) is a family of owls, and this first card is an interlocking gate fold card.  I added a die cut from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments to the frame which I attached only to the left side of the card.  The focal is attached only to the right side of the card.  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the inside, but I used a scrap of coordinating card stock for the center of the inside - bordered on either side with a border die cut that I cut in half.  This was embellished with a tag from the kit (with a bit of red ribbon), and another sentiment from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments.

Next up uses a green glitter card stock base.   The red/white border is cut from one of the coordinating card stock sheets.  The die cuts are from the kit.

For the inside, I added a border piece and tag - both from the kit - finishing the tag with a piece of gold-bordered red ribbon.

For card number three, I used a leftover piece of coordinating card stock, then added the focal & frame (both from the kit).  The sentiment is from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments set.

The inside is simply decorated with a bit of coordinating card stock that has a bunch of owls on it.

For the next card, I used some red/white/green striped paper to finish the card front before adding a wide red ribbon border from my stash.  The focal is a die cut frame attached to a piece of the coordinating card stock.  The sentiment is again from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments set.

For the inside, I used another piece of the coordinating card stock & red ribbon border.  I finished that with a couple of small die cuts from the kit.

The final card in this set started with a piece of coordinating card stock on the card front.  I added a sentiment tag from 2016 Christmas Sentiments, embellished with a small bit of ribbon.

For the inside, I added the remaining piece of the border die and added an owl die cut.  The star sentiment is from the 2016 Christmas Sentiments.

That makes 5 more cards from this kit, for a total of 33 cards so far.
