Waiting for Santa.

Good evening Followers,Friends and Visitors,

Hope everyone is feeling well,  there seems to be a lot of coughs and colds around at the moment, so hope you all steer clear of those.   Boy has it been  windy here today !  very wet and dull.    Well onto a happier subject - crafting lol!   just the sort of day to do some crafting  with no guilt feelings that I should be out in the garden cutting  down the dead plants  or clearing up the fallen leaves !   Tonight's card was made in June 2012 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's.   This is just such a cute image of the two owls, I think most people like owls don't they ?  well I certainly like these two lol.   So, let's get cracking ! 

Make a base card using red cardstock.   Matt some white and then some blue card onto the red base card, each time leaving a small border.

Take a piece of white card approximately  one quarter of an inch smaller than the blue card and matt this onto the blue card.   Put this base card to one side for the moment.

Stamp the main owl image six times onto another piece white card using the black inkpad.   Colour them with Promarker pens cut them out and 3D them.   Fix  the base image onto some blue card and trim around the edges leaving a tiny border of the blue showing.

Stamp the Santa hat ten times, colour them  and cut them out.   Glue one to each corner of the base card.   Stamp the holly scroll and the text onto the white card using a black inkpad., putting the greeting across the bottom.     Colour the holly in using Promarkers.

Make a border using the Santa hats by glueing two hats on the left and four on the right,  alternate the hats ie.,  one up then one down and so on across the centre of the card.   Fix the 3D owls to the left-hand side of the base card on top of the hat border.

Add three red star gemstones to the top right of the card.   That's this card finished.   Thank you so much for visiting my blog,  I do hope you will visit again soon.
