Wednesday’s Card: Santa and Reindeer Owls!

Holiday Owls

Holiday Owls

Hi All!

The holidays wouldn’t be complete without making a Christmas card with my owl punch! I did the same owl Santa from last year, but then I added a couple of reindeer. I saw this card fold in my Paper Crafts magazine and thought it would be perfect with the owls. I love it because it also opens up like a regular card so you can write on the inside.

Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday so far!!

    I love the sparkly fluff and your tip that using the tape runner instead of glue is MUCH appreciated!

    Love the Santa and Reindeer. I really like to watch you ink the backgrounds. I’m still a bit heavy handed with the distress inks. TFS

    I found a punch at Target that looks exactly like the reindeer antlers. By EK Success in their cfart section.

    Love your interactive “easy fold” Owl card, Darlene! My friend and I made a variation of this (we don’t have the owls, boo hoo). This card design has a big WOW factor, but it does not take forever to finish (my kind of card!!) Thanks so much for sharing your design with us!

    K, I realize this is really really late, but I have to tell you how much I adore this card!!! From the way you did the hills, to the background, to the owls and puffy white stuff – I am pinning this one for use this Christmas. I have lots of friends that LOVE LOVE LOVE owls 🙂
    Please keep doing what you do, I am inspired all the time! Love the new look too 😉

    Found this tutorial video on Kittie’s blog this a.m. Cute, happy, fun card. Like the nice, embossed bkgrd panel and cute owl characters. 🙂

    I visit day-to-day a few blogs and blogs to
    read articles, but this web site gives quality based content.

    This is too cute – I’ve started looking for a stamp/punch set similar to the retired set you used..could please tell me what size is the snowflake?

    A-D-O-R-E-A-B-L-E! I sure want to make one similar. I’ve seen different “critters” pretend that they were the Easter bunny, and this little owl just makes me laugh!

    You always get me with your owl cards. I just love every one that you have done. I love, love, love this card. Thank you. I am soo glad that I have that punch.

    Omg!!! This is one of the very first cards I ever saw of yours. These owls from the SU punch are my favorites.
