Furry & Bright Christmas Card
Hey, friends! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And today, I'll be using papers from the Christmas Greetings Collection to create this adorable Christmas card for the dog-lover in your life!
I started with a sheet of Christmas Greetings One and Christmas Greetings Three. From Christmas Greetings One, I cut out the panel with "Furry and Bright" and the one with the puppy with a gift dangling from its mouth. That titled head did it for me! That little guy is too cute!
I first was going to just use the puppy with the decorative frame intact but decided to cut him completely out instead.
Then, I used a Big Shot Machine and a Tim Holtz Stitched Oval die to cut put the Furry and Bright.
Next, I ran a piece of green and white cardstock through my Xyron Create-A-Sticker. Then die cut Pine tree branches from the green cardstock and berry sprigs from the white cardstock.
I left the white sprigs as is but inked up the edges of the pine needles with Forest Moss Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool.
For my card base, I knew I wanted it to be a slimline card. So I cut a piece of cream card stock to 9 1/4" x 4". The maximum size I create my slimline that will still allow them to fit into a legal size envelope.
For the background paper, I used Christmas Greetings Three and cut it to measure 9" x 3 7/8".
I used a We R Memory Keepers Stub Corner Punch to cut the corners of the card base and the background panel.
Then I used my Mega Runner to attach the two together.
I attached my pine tree branches to the card front in a sort of draping arch. Then laid the berries over the branches.
I added foam adhesive to the back of my die-cut Furry and Bright sentiment and added it alongside my arch.
I added a multi-looped bow topped with a red button to the top of my sentiment.
And added foam adhesive to the back of the puppy I cut out earlier and attached him to the from of my card.
Look at that sweet face! How stinking adorable is he?!
And here is my finished card...
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy project for the day and it inspires you to create an adorable card for the dog lover in your life!
