Santa Owl


Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.  

I spent a fun afternoon crafting for some lovely ladies.  This is the card we made and Suze spotted right away that it would fit the challenge at Dynamic Duos which is Cherry Cobbler and a colour of your choice along with neutrals if you wish.  My other colour is Gumball Green. 

We started with a Cherry Cobbler base then added a panel of Whisper White which was embossed with Perfect Polka Dots.  Remember to stamp your sentiment first though.  This one is from Chock Full of Cheer (a new set available from tomorrow!) and is stamped in Gumball Green.  We added a ribbon banner from the beautiful Be Of Good Cheer christmas designer papers using the 1 1/4" Square Punch

Now the real fun part was making up this cute Santa owl.  His body is punched out of Chocolate Chip using the Owl Punch, his eyes are Whisper White and Basic Black.  We used Red Glimmer Paper for his vest and hat. For the hat we used the Petite Pennants Punch, just punching out the tip to get the correct size.  I just love all the sparkle you get from the glimmer paper, even when you use a small amount.  His belt is a strip of black with a Whisper White flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes.  The circle in the middle is also from the Owl Punch.  His hat trims are also the Itty Bitty flowers, as is his pom pom. 

I have some more fun projects to share with you from today.  But that's all from me tonight.  

Remember to call back tomorrow to have a look at our fab new catalogue.  It's huge so sit down with your favourite tipple and browse to your hearts content.  x
