Merry Christmas - Owl in Silhouette card - Day 355 of my 365 day challenge

Merry Christmas - Owl in Silhouette card - 
Day 355 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I thought I would make a slightly different (non festive) Christmas card for day 355 of my challenge - this time using an image I cut out using my Brother Scan n Cut on a hand coloured background.


How I made this card:-
  • I found this image of an owl (not sure where I found it) and imported it into my Brother Scan n Cut Canvas Workspace and resized it to the one I wanted (approx 3.5" x 3") and then moved it to my machine and cut it out in black card.
  • I coloured a piece of white linen effect with Orange, Yellow and Red dye based/distress inks to create a sunrise/sunset background. I then trimmed it to 4.5" x 5" and glued it to a slightly larger black piece of card.
  • I cut a strip of Orange and White spotty paper (approximately 1" wide and 7" wide) and glued it to a slightly wider piece of black card.
  • I then glued it to the centre of a 7" x 5" white card (tent fold style).
  • As I wanted the card to be slightly different, I took a 7" envelope and measured where I could stick the topper on the card and stuck it on in the middle of the card, making sure I hadn't glued the whole back of course!
  • I then cut out the Merry Christmas sentiment using a Tattered Lace die and some black card and stuck it to the bottom left hand corner of the topper.

And there you are a slightly different Christmas card using my Brother Scan n Cut, some dye based inks and a die!
