Owls for Christmas

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you are having a great weekend. We have spent our time catching up on lots of Christmas jobs like sorting cards and presents. Today will be more of the same.

On to the card. I was asked by someone to make her some Christmas cards with owls on them. This an updated version of a card I made last year but I couldn't find it on my blog so I am sharing this version.

I used two embossing folders in the background layers. The dark brown layer was embossed with my new wood grain embossing folder. I did cut the aperture with a circle die before I embossed the card. 

The owls were stamped with an old Creative Expressions stamp that I got when I was on the Sam Poole Design Team. This time I stamped them with black archival onto water colour card and then coloured them with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens. I do love those pens. These owls are very easy to cut out. 

You can just see the holly and the branches that I cut with some older festive dies designed by Sue Wilson. 

The sentiment was cut with a Signature die. 

I might have made this design before but I always make changes every time I make a design. This time I had a wood grain embossing folder. The lady I made the cards for loved them. I did make one of these for my in-laws as it has lots of texture. 

Enjoy the rest of the week.  

Happy Crafting
