I hope all had a happy Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.Card making went by the board for a few days but my family has quite a few birthdays in January so I need to start making some now.
I used distress inks and masking to create the background and wrapped a ribbon round it before matting onto navy mirri card and off white card.
The trees were cut out from glitter silk cardstock using Spellbinders holiday tree dies (I cut off the base of each) and mini gems were used to represent stars.
The owl image is stamped from Chocolate Baroques Crhistmas creature set. I coloured it using Promarkers and distress inks, cut it out and then applied Stickles to the branches and liquid Pearl to the mistletoe berries. I shaped the owl slightly before attaching it to the card with glue gel.
Pearls and a bow embellished the sentiment which was attached with foam pads.
