Oh my, oh my................. it's only 3 days left until Christmas and I have been such a bad blogger of late that I'm sure to be crossed off Santa's list!!! I hope it doesn't work like that.........
I'm finally getting around to posting the final card from my Christmas Card Class at the end of November. Since then there has also been a December class where we did thank-you cards, and I will try really hard to get those posted before the New year rolls around.
Unfortunately I'm working between Christmas and New Year, but I hope to have a play with loads of NEW Stampin' Up! goodies that have been arriving these past few weeks on my doorstep. I;m sure it hasn't escaped anyone's attention that Stampin' Up! are for the first time ever releasing a SPRING MINI catalogue on 4th January! There are lots of lovely things, and I hope to post a few sneak peeks for you over the next week.
However, on with today's card.................
A lovely Christmassy Santa Owl punch art card that was inspired by a card I saw on a sample board at Convention. I'm not sure who's the card was, but I changed mine up a little.
The card base is Old Olive, with a night sky layer of Night of Navy. I stamped some snowflakes in Whisper White from Serene Snowflakes stamp set. The roofing is Basic Gray card, punched with the Scallop Border Punch and dauber with Whisper White ink. The Chimney is a 1 1/4" Square of Textured Cajun Craze, lined up with another piece punched with the Word Window Punch. Again these were daubed for a snowy effect.
My owl was punched from Chocolate Chip card. I stamped the Santa Suit image from Tags til Christmas and punched it using the Owl Punch for the chest piece, and added eyes and a Santa hat. The present is simply a piece of Daffodil Delight punched with the 1 1/4" Square and then tied with some Linen Thread.
I used this design for another card which I will show you before the year is out. One of the girls at work asked me to make cards for her Grandsons. One of them has never had anything with his name on as they can never find it. I also had a very strange request for a Christmas card relating to peanuts!!!! I worked with it and was really pleased with the results............. Check back to see what on earth I am talking about!
