Winking Santa Owl 2011

Do you recall the Stampin' Up! Winking Santa Owl that I designed with the Owl Builder Punch in the fall of 2010 (click here to see it)?  That card has been the most viewed card of any others that I have designed.  Thus, I decided to make a Winking Santa Owl for 2011.  Here it is:

This year I decided not to use the typical red and white colors.  Instead, I used primarily Pacific Point and Wild Wasabi.

The Wild Wasabi background features the Stampin' Up! Northern Flurry Embossing Folder and the Whisper White cardstock features the new Stampin' Up! Snow Burst Embossing Folder.

I designed the tree branches upon which the Santa Owl rests, and I embellished them with the new Stampin' Up! Dazzling Details.  The white part of Santa's hat anchors the new Stampin' Up! Mica Flakes.  The Santa Owl is winking, as he was last year, because although the sentiment says, "He's gonna find out whooooose naughty or nice!", Santa will always fill up our hanging, bright stockings and place our desired gifts under the tall,  blinking Christmas tree!  Actually, the sentiment was made using My Digital Studio (MDS).  I love MDS!  Do you own it?  If not, purchase it here.

Lastly, the ribbon that flows behind the sentiment is a retired Pacific Point Striped Poly Ribbon.  (The bumps from the embossed snowflakes gives the ribbon a raised look in spots.)   Other Stampin' Up! products used are the Scallop Edge Border Punch and Olive Fine Supernova and Black Fine Galaxy Stampin' Glitter.  

I hope you enjoy the card as much as I enjoyed making it!
