Holiday Card Workshop Day 1 HW – Owl I Want For Christmas Is You

HCW13_participant

 

Hey everyone! Today I’m here with a very late card for Day 1 of the Holiday Card Workshop at Online Card Classes.

The lesson for day 1 was the importance of not only the outside of the card, but also the inside. We were challenged to make a card with something on the inside.

Here is the outside of my card –

owl i want front

 

And here is the inside —

owl I want inside

 

I’ve always wanted to make a window card and never got it right since I didn’t have a die-cutting machine. Now that I have one, I thought it would be awesome to make a window card.

Let’s get to the card details —

I started card with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock cut to a standard size card with the fold on top. To make the window, I used the the 4th smallest circle from the Sizzix Framelits cirlce die set. To make the frame, I used the a slightly larger scallop die from the Sizzix Framelits Cirlce Scallop die set. I cut the frame using patterned paper from the Noel collection from American Crafts. I also used a strip of the same patterned paper at the bottom.

For the inside of the card, I lined the entire panel with a snowflake printed pattern paper from the same Noel Collection from American Crafts. I stamped the owl from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl and the tree log from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the AC Chromatix markers to try (the operative word is try) to color and blend. I really want to learn how to blend alcohol markers and I really don’t think I’m any good. I will keep practicing until I get better. I paper pieced another patterned paper from the Noel collection to be the owl’s scarf. I placed both images on the inside of the card to align with the window so the image can be seen when the card is open or closed. For the sentiment, I used the sentiment the Winter Owl set and selectively stamped with Cottage Ivy and Rhubarb Stalk inks from Memento. I stamped it on the Sizzix scallop oval from the Sizzix and Doodlebug Borders set. I braided Lawn Fawn’s Peppermint twine and adhered the sentiment panel on top. To finish the card, I distressed the scallop oval with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink and rounded the corners.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.

OWL I WANT IS YOU

On pink card stock, I used the one of the Chevron backgrounds from Lawn Fawn’s Chevron backdrops set. I stamped the image using Memento Angel Pink Ink.

On white card stock, using Memento Tuxedo black ink I stamped 2 owls from the Winter Owl set and used the hearts from the same set to make a pattern for the scarves. I colored the owls in using Bic Mark It Markers. I cut a heart out from the same white card stock and colored it in with a red Bic Mark It Marker. I used the heart as an accent piece in between the owls.

For the sentiment, I decided to modify the Christmas themed Winter Owl sentiment and removed the word “Christmas”. I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo black

Since I already had 7 items and I wanted to round my corners, I free handed it using my scissors.

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You 

I made this card in October and I entered it for the Lawn Fawn and Two Peas In A Bucket challenge. I thought I would share it since I never made a blog post about it. 🙂

Owl I Want For Christmas Is You

I started out with a bamboo green card stock from The Paper Company cut to a standard size card with the flap on the side. To that I layered some red card stock and then layered the green chevron paper from Lawn Fawn’s Fa-la-la patterned paper pack. For the top panel, I stamped the Polaroid image from Say Cheese on the O Christmas Tree patterned paper from the same Fa-la-la paper pack. I distressed the Polaroid with some Dessert Sand ink from Memento. For the actual picture in the Polaroid, I distressed the background with some Summer Sky ink from Memento on the entire square and some Broken China Distress ink for a darker effect on the sides. Then I stamped the Snowflake stamp from Imaginisce in Bahama Blue ink from Memento and accented each snowflake with some blue stickles. For the owl, I used Lawn Fawn’s Winter Owl set. I stamped the owl on some plain white card stock and colored it in with Copics. I paper pieced the scarf with the same green chevron paper from the Fa-la-la paper pack by Lawn Fawn. I used googly eyes for fun. For the sentiment, I used the puny sentiment from the same Winter Owl set. I stamped the each word individually to properly space it between three lines in Lady Bug and Cottage Ivy inks from Memento. I also stamped the mini heart border. I placed some peppermint single cord from Lawn Fawn under the die cut image for added accent.

 

I Heart You

**This card is for the Lawn Fawn CHA and Winter Catalog Challenge 

I Heart You I H U

On a standard size kraft card stock from The Paper Company, I stamped the medium chevron pattern from the Chevron Backdrops set alternately in Rhubarb Stalk and Paris Dusk inks from Memento. I adhered the front panel on a Bazzill card stock in Nightmist, then I stamped an alphabet block using Claire’s ABC and highlighted the I and U in Rhubarb Stalk. For the heart, i punched out one with red card stock. I accented the heart with some red stickles. To finish the card, I used the mini heart border from the Winter Owl set.
