Christmas Puppies

Hello everyone.   I have, not one, but eight Christmas cards to share today.  Unfortunately, none of the recipients have received their cards before this post, so I hope they will like them when they do. 😉



I placed the four puppy images in my MISTI and stamped them with Memento black ink on X-Press It paper twice and coloured them with Copics.  I coloured one set red and the other blue.  I was planting to use Kraft with all of them and make them all the same, but when I went through my bags of scraps, I found various pieces and snippets that would allow each to be slightly different. Most of the images were die cut out with a circle die and paired with a Merry Christmas frame.  A few were die cut out with the coordinating die and added to different backgrounds.



snippet: embossed red stripe square



snippet: grid stencilled Kraft panel



snipoet: embossed woodgrain Kraft panel… I just sponged Kraft ink on top so the details would show better.



snippets: white stitched panel, Kraft tag and red ribbon… I just stencilled Kraft ink through a Radiating Rays stencil to create the background



snippet: I found one white double embossed panel and liked how the circle frame nestled perfectly into the circle area so I double embossed a second piece.



snippet: navy blue panel… there were actually two panels so I just kept this one very simple and silver heat embossing the sentiment



snippets: silver Christmas die cut sentiment and the other navy blue panel… I just die cut a stripe panel from white cardstock and stamped happy and wishes


That does it for this post.  Thank you for visiting.  Happy Holidays!
