We're doing something special for grandparents this week for those still lucky enough to have them. I've chosen this cute owl stamp from Francoise Read with the wise old Grandad owl & the silly young one! Paper piecing (not to be confused with piercing!!) all the way with this design & the Perfect Prints paper pads are just, well......perfect!! Chose your complimentary papers, including the one which you intend for the background & stamp the image on each before cutting out the relevant parts. What's great with this technique is that if you are careful with your cutting out you have several other cards to make with all the other pieces.Now piece them back together on the background piece.The set as always comes with some great icons & sentiments some of which you see here in the background of the design. I've punched a shape with the Ornates Brackets punch & made up the message with peel off letters. I've highlighted the owls' eyes with an orange Sakura Stardust pen also the hearts in the background.To finish I've added some raffia to the back of the sentiment & some faux stitching around the edge of the craft card blank.
