Christmas cards already?

This is a card I made for QKR Stampede. They put out a call for card fronts, as they will be doing their first trade show in September. I think this wise old owl is darn cute! The stamp is called Christmas Cheer, I colored him with my trusty watercolor crayons. (But of course!)

The striped background paper is some that I made. I so enjoyed doing this. First, I cut some white cardstock. Next I adhered it to my cutting mat with repositionable tape. I then used the measurements on the mat to lay down some wide Scor-tape (1/2" wide) at equal intervals (1/2"). Next I used the narrow Scor-tape (1/8" wide) and placed that the same way, between the wider tape. I rubbed the cardstock with my Embossing Buddy to remove any static (a dryer sheet also works well) I pulled the backing off the wide Scor-tape exposing the adhesive and poured on the red Fun Flock, being sure to pat it down onto the adhesive. Once this was done, I shook off the extra Fun Flock and poured it back into the jar. Then I repeated the process with the green Fun Flock.

I cut out the owl and used Stickles on the hat and candy cane. I used Glossy Accents on his glasses to make them look like glass.

Once everything was good and dry I used foam tape to adhere him to the flocked paper. Once that was adhered to the green cardstock, I tied the ribbon around it to finish it off. I wrote the Happy Holidays with a Zig pen.

I love this card! I had so much fun making the striped, flocked paper. Now I'm looking for some more ideas that I can use this technique for. I've made some with glitter and it is just beautiful. Now what to use it for?!?!

Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment if you wish and become a follower.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Super cute card, Kristie!! Love all the little extra details you added. I haven't tried that flocking technique yet . . . one day . . . some day! LOL You did a fantastic job with it! You're certainly giving QKR a lot of nice samples for its first convention!
