Owls at Christmas

Hi Bloggers

I have just finished a Christmas card commission and I'm rather pleased with myself. The girl who comes to the house to give me  Sports Massages (I have trouble neck and shoulders) saw a card I had made featuring two owls and she asked me to make her six for Christmas.


This is the card she saw it was actually one of the pieces I 
submitted when I was accepted onto Sam Poole's Design team. She wanted six Christmas cards with hardly any changes. The original card was 8" x 8".


This is what I came up with I did make some changes to make it a bit more Christmassy and they are just a little bit smaller.  The background embossing  is from a Sue Wilson A4 embossing folder. 


Aren't the owls cute they are stamps from Sam Poole's woodland creatures series I coloured them with Promarkers.


The holly and branches were cut with some of the new release Sue Wilson Christmas dies. I made the berries with CS Pearl PVA glue.


Here they are together on the shelf, I am going to put the first one away so she can't compare. I hope she likes them if she doesn't I will have 6 cards I can use myself.

Enjoy the weekend. If you read my previous post you will know we are off to Destination Star Trek tomorrow. There is a group of about 8 of us going. It should be fun. I will post some pictures when we get back

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
