Stampin' Up! Still Night Fun Fold Christmas Card

Good Saturday morning, peeps! Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a good one. I have nothing planned except to get my card inventory straightened out for a craft fair in November. It'll be my first one and I have no idea how to prepare. I'm open to suggestions.

My card today will not be part of the inventory as I created it for a particular person in mind. I have used the Still Night Stamp Set and the Night in Bethlehem Stamp set, both retired. I don't know what the name of the fold is but I made the same design yesterday with my penguin card.

This is a totally non-traditional Christmas card so I'm making it my third entry into the Christmas Craft Creations Challenge for August.

The Blackberry Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper is just beautiful with the touches of gold, isn't it? I used Blackberry Bliss ink for the sentiment and Early Espresso for the image on the Basic White cardstock panel. I rounded the edges with the Detailed Trio Punch. I colored the owl with Light and Dark Crumb Cake Blends, Gray Granite and Pool Party Blends. The tree branch is colored with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker. The image panel is adhered to a Blackberry Bliss mat. Measurements and instructions are on my post from yesterday.

I will be redoing the inside of the card as I think the sentiment is a little crooked and I think the camera picked up a halo...agree?

I'm submitting my card to these challenges as well:

Thank you for stopping by today and if you are in the path of Hurricane Ida, I pray you will be safely brought through her.
