Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Yesterday I announced my newest Stamp Class … Christmas Scottie. The Scottie is so adorable and I just LOVE punches because they make your cardmaking a touch quicker! I teamed up the Christmas Scottie with a quick and easy technique I shared at my Halloween Class … The magic of markers to dress up a plain black and white piece of designer paper.
Join me now as I share how easy this Christmas cutie is to make ….
I began with a Basic Black base and a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Real Red which will mat our designer paper which measures 3-3/4″ x 5″. Before you adhere your designer paper to the mat, you will be coloring it with your markers; I used Real Red and Garden Green. The designer paper is the Rustic Harvest Designer paper found in the Mini Catalog.
My sweet little Scottie Dog is punched out from the Metallic & Shimmer paper found in the Mini catalog… although you could use Basic Black. I then punched the bow out of Real Red and attached it to my puppy. I mounted my Christmas Scottie onto a piece of Vellum Cardstock that I had leftover from another project (it’s around 2″ in diameter). Don’t you love how the vellum makes the dog stand out more! This piece was popped up with dimensionals.
The greeting comes from our stamp set and was stamped in Garden Green ink to coordinate with the Garden Green stripes that we added to our designer paper. Don’t forget that you save 10% when you bundle the stamp set and punch. And the “eye” on my Scottie is actually one of the metallic dots on the specialty paper … cool right!?
I want to thank you for joining me today for my debut of Christmas Scottie. This will not be one of the cards in my class, but you know you’ll leave with totally cute cards (and a treat for your puppy!) plus there is always something “sweet” as a treat for you too.
Have a good day ~
Here is a list of supplies I used to create today’s card ….
