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!!

    What a brilliant video! The best I’ve seen. You explain it beautifully and show us exactly what to do. Thank you.

  3. 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?

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

  5. Darlene, that was the best tutorial ever! Thank you so much for so many great techniques and for the super cute owldeer card.

  6. 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. 🙂

  7. 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 😉

  8. 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!
