I used a patterned note card that had a white die-cut like center and I knew the branch frame would not fit the note card framing, but thought I'd give it a go and I think it works. It's not too far from the outline and the focal point (yes, it is the owl) draws the eye past any discrepancies in matching the die-cut with the imprinted card base. HAPPY DAYS!
Hope you like Poppy. He's totally fun to work with.
