I think this is the cutest Christmas card ever!!!  It was made using the Ready for Christmas bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  I just smile every time I look at it.  Maybe because it reminds me of my little grand-dog Sage!  And given the fact that she is always wearing sweaters!  This card was so fun to make.  Lots of pieces and coloring, but I thoroughly enjoyed just sitting down and putzing!  Not my usual style!

Here is a super goofy picture of Sage from last Christmas!  Doesn’t she look like the puppy on my card???  (besides her goofy ears that she likes to hold back!)

A Few Tips

  • Use die to cut staircase/banister from a piece of the Wood Textures DSP–it works perfect for this!
  • Stamp the greenery on a scrap of Garden Green cardstock in Garden Green ink and cut out with die
  • Little bows are just tied and adhered with a glue dot
  • Stamp images to be colored in Menento ink on scrap of Whisper White Thick cardstock and make sure it’s dry before coloring.
  • Color with Blends before cutting out.  If you don’t know how to use the Blends for SIMPLE AND QUICK coloring, ask and I have a couple of videos I can share with you
  • Use Mini Dimensionals to adhere the pieces to card

Adhesives Used:

I get asked all the time about which adhesive I recommend.  That is a hard question to answer because I truly use all the different ones, at different times, for different things!  So the answer is–YOU NEED THEM ALL!  On this card, these are the adhesives I used:

  • Liquid Multipurpose for layers, steps/banister and greenery
  • Glue dots for bows
  • Mini Dimensionals for cut out images
