Welcome to the Christmas Card Blog Hop! If you've come from visiting Jamie, you're in the right place. If you were just looking at my blog and want to play along with our blog hopping fun, you can go to the beginning at Crafty Card Gallery. This blog hop is intended to get you in the Christmas Spirit.... If you haven’t already started/finished your Christmas cards, hopefully this will inspire you to come up with an idea... and maybe you can win some blog candy or get ideas for great Christmas gifts (whether they’re on your list or for someone else!). So if you aren’t braving the malls and can get some computer time, come join us for some fun!
Some of you may have seen my Mr. & Mrs. Clause Owl card I posted yesterday for the Finally Friday Sparkle challenge at GAB (Gimme A Break) Challenges. I decided to give everyone a tutorial as it was requested. These were really easy cards to make and I had so much fun puting them together!
Mr. & Mrs. Clause Owls
|1. Punch the two-step owl in both crumb cake and soft suede.|
|2. Punch the medium circles only in whisper white for the eyes.|
|3. Punch the smallest circles in black cardstock.|
|4. Piece together your owls using the 2-way glue.|
|5. Set your owls aside. You now need Jolly Old St. Nick,|
Block E, Early Espresso Ink, Whisper White CS.
|6. To save paper, ink up the Santa face stamp and only stamp |
the top portion twice as you only need the hats.
7. Color one Santa hat with Real Red.
8. Color the second hat as shown above.
|9. Cut out your Santa hats as show above.|
|10. Now you will need to trim your hats down as shown |
so they'll fit on your owls heads properly.
|11. Using your 2-way glue start with the white on the hats and cover them |
with chunky silver glitter. Repeat this with the red on the hats using chunky red glitter.
|12. Your owls and hats should look as seen above. |
Now all you have to do is put it on your card!
