Christmas Owls - Winkin, Blinkin & Nod

Winkin ,Blinkin and Nod

My base card is strong acetate scored and folded then edged with a permanemt gold marker the scalloped brown square was made with the fiskers border punch I threaded a piece of ribbon through the centre holes and again edged with the gold marker.
I layered a piece of red card stock over this that matched the little Santa hats and added a few irridescent snowflakes top and bottom.
on a pieceof cream card stock I stamped the owls in coffee bean brilliance ink(sorry no name of stamp or maker printed on the stamp, it was bought at a craft fair).
I made the little hats and addedstickles glitter glue to the image & added this ontop of the red and brown card with foam pads.
I added the image to the acetate with glue dots then hid this on the inside of the acetate card with more snowflakes.

A close up view of the Owls.

You can see the little pom poms are made from fringing a length of paper and rolling it up tight and then splaying the fringe. the little hats are just pices of card cut in a triangle and the white trim is again card cut to shape and glittered with stickles.

I'm excited!! I have this stamp - bought from a stand at the Make It show at Farnborough along with a few others - but haven't used it. I'm an owl freak so it was bought more as a collectors item really but I may just now do something with it - lol!!
Beautiful card Jak and a really cute 'ahhhh' factor.
