A very festive dog for my Festive Friends card - Lou Sims


Sharing another project using the Festive Dogs stamp - from Festive Friends stamp & die collection - to create my card which was another of my projects for the recent launch on Hochanda.



I began by layering some plastic netting - from where I got I do not know - and then a border of patterned paper.


Next I stamped the Circle Bauble and coloured with traditional Christmas colours using Nuvo Brush Script pens, die cutting the bauble out with the matching outer die. On a white piece of card, I cut an outer bauble only, layering my coloured bauble on top. After deciding which 'jaunty angle' I would use, I stamped the sentiment. The '25th' was made using 'Buildables Birthday Numbers' die set.



I stamped the cute dog image on to water colour card and had great fun colouring him in with my Nuvo Brush Script pens. I even added some glitter to his hat which sadly doesn't show.


The added extras are from the Gingerbread House die set and I couldn't resist using them for this project. I have used some Craft Pertfect bakers twine to link the elements together and finally a 'DECEMBER' using the recently released Months & Suffixes die set.


A quick(ish) card to make and surprisingly for me, not overly cluttered! As you can see, I'm slowly catching up with my posts but there is still more to share ...
