Good Morning! Shhh… Today I am sharing the Christmas card that I made for my husband! I used the cute Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle along with the ‘Tis The Season designer series paper and I colored the images with the Stampin’ Up! watercolor pencils! This is the card I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon and you can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I adhered the plaid ‘Tis The Season designer series paper to the front of a Real Red card base. I used the Banner Triple punch on the bottom of the Garden Green strip to create the fishtail and adhered the strip to the card with liquid glue. I cut a panel of Crumb Cake card stock with the Stitched Rectangle die and stamped the owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have a Hoot cling stamp set in Crumb Cake ink. I stamped another set of owls on a smaller Crumb Cake panel and cut them out with the coordinating die.
I colored the branch, leaves and mistletoe on the large panel with the Early Espresso and Garden Green watercolor pencils. I colored the wings and sides of the die cut owls with Early Espresso and used the blender pen to smooth out the coloring. I colored the bellies with Whisper White and the beaks and feet with the daffodil delight. I popped the die cut owls on the main panel with dimensionals. I love how the images are drawn so you can die cut the owls and get a clean edge – no branch lines on the feet!
I cut two mistletoe branches from the Peek A Hoot dies from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle from Garden Green and adhered them on the top of the panel. I cut a Cherry Cobbler border using the pretty scalloped border die from the Peony dies and adhered them to the back of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Versamark ink on Real Red. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set until shiny. I cut it out with the small Stitched Rectangle die using the two step die cutting method so that it is shorter and fits the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the panel with liquid glue and popped the panel on the card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with a braided linen knot and three white resin dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot stamp set in Real Red ink on a Whisper White panel. I die cut another set of Garden Green mistletoe and adhered them to the top corner. I cut some Whisper White dots using the North Pole Wonder dies and adhered them with liquid glue. I trimmed the bottom with the plaid ‘Tis The Season DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I CASE’d this sweet card from the Aug 2020 Mini Catalog, because when I saw it, I knew that I needed to make it for my dear hubby. The owls from the Stampin’ Up! Have A Hoot bundle are just too cute! Have a great week!!
