They are better known for sitting on the X Factor panel and judging hopeful popstars on their vocal abilities.
But now, the judges themselves have been given the chance to show off their own talent, and both Gary Barlow and Tulisa have proven that there is more artistic flair to them than simply belting out a few high notes.
Both singers have sketched cute Christmas card designs which feature in a bespoke pack of six alongside designs from The Saturdays, Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden, and Daybreak's Lorraine Kelly and Aled Jones.
