Santa Owl by Fliss Goodwin



Hi there, I have another Christmas card for you this week which features this adorable little owl from Stampendous who went on my wish list from the moment I saw him. The card is actually really simple using only red, brown and cream with a rather grungy snowflake background which is really easy to make.


Here’s What You Need: 

Christmas Sentiment Stamp – there are lots in the Christmas Shop
Distress Stains – Barn Door, Pumice Stone, Rusty Hinge, Scattered Straw, Antiqued Bronze, Picket Fence
Distress Ink – Barn Door
Red Card
Square Card Blank
Rectangular Die (Optional)


Here’s How To:

·       Stamp the owl on to the stamping card with the coffee ink. When dry, paint with the Distress Stains, using the metallic and white to add highlights. Die cut to a rectangular shape. Swipe with the VersaMark ink underneath the owl and heat emboss with the puff white embossing powder.


·       Cut a panel of kraft card around the size of the embossing folder and dry emboss with a snowflake design. Swipe the raised areas with the VersaMark ink and heat emboss with the puff white powder. Don’t worry where the powder sticks as it adds to the crunchy, snowy feel of the panel.


·       Prepare a mat for the owl panel by cutting a piece of white card slightly larger than the image panel and applying Barn Door Distress ink around the edges. Whilst the ink is still wet, heat emboss with the clear sparkly powder.


·       Stamp a sentiment on to stamping card with the coffee ink (a rectangular or oval shape works best on this design). Trim to shape and round the corners if a rectangle. Assemble the card as you see, adding a narrow red panel on the right side of the card to stick the sentiment to. 


Have a great weekend.
