Friday Project - Owl Tree

Morning, tis my turn - Gaynor for the weekly Friday Blog Project from Little Claire.  Christmas is a coming................the project I have designed for today pretty much sums up the season for me...........the colours, the glitter, thoughts of the countryside, the wider world, having the opportunity to get outside over the winter break..........taking time to appreciate just how good things really are...........and I am very grateful.

I have used Little Claire's Owl Tree, backing papers from LC - selection of promarkers, card candi, glitter glue, spotty ribbon and a MS snowflake punch plus smaller snowflake punch.

The card is created on an A4 piece of white card cut so:

Then the backing paper is measured over the base card and cut:

Add the ribbon to a strip of cordinating paper.

Punch and layer up the snowflakes. Stamp sentiment and layer onto scalloped punched mount.

Stamp and colour images. Cut out separate little owls to add as an embellishment later.

The card is not a quickie design................but perhaps a special card for a special person or persons.......I have adapted this design into an Anniversary Card for my parents who are celebrating their 55th Wedding Anniversary on December 21st.................Many congratulations Mum and Dad :)

Thank you for taking the time to check out my weekly project for Little Claire.

Wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
