Ready for some more Christmas Cards – I am!
It’s a new challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas and this week Julie has picked the challenge –
So what type of Christmas bird would you use? For some inspiration click here and pop over to see what the other members of the Design Team have created and join in the fun!
Well for my Christmas Birds, I have gone for Christmas Owls and they are both dressed up for Christmas.
I do not really have any Christmas Bird images and so I went surfing on the internet and found a punch art tutorial which was created by Rebecca at Stamp 4 Joy using the Owl Builder and Bird Builder punches.
So I found all my scraps and started punching. The Owls bodies were embossed in the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder before they were punched out.
The Owl’s hat’s have been created using the wing from the bird punch and the trim is created using the Word Window punch.
The branch was hand drawn on a scrap piece of paper to create a template and then I used the template to give the outline to cut out on a piece of the Well Worn DSP. I added a little Early Espresso ink to the outside edges of the branch when it was cut out.
The snow flakes from the Snow Swirled set were added to the base card, which is Old Olive have been stamped in Old Olive ink. Of course there is ‘bling’ added for good measure, love my ‘bling’.
The sentiment is also from the Snow Swirled stamp set and has been stamped in Cherry Cobbler, punched out using the Decorative Label punch.
The edges of the Top Note Whisper White layer and the sentiment have had Old Olive ink added with a dauber.
Here is my card….
