Oh I love doggy Christmas cards, and I was so excited when I thought up ways to convert my Thanksgiving digi from last week, “Thanksgiving Boost,” into an image for Christmas cards!
I made these two cards using the large Christmas tree die and the mini album dog bone die from Diemond Dies. Remember, use the Diemond Dies coupon code “thankskristina” for 10% off of your entire order and free worldwide shipping on orders of $35 or more.
I made a dog bone hinge card using plain white card stock and embossed the top layer of the bone with some swirly designs (to give the illusion of swirling snow?). From the top layer, I die cut out a Christmas tree. Using some foam adhesive I backed the Christmas tree opening with a scrap of pale green patterned paper so that the tree would be recessed. I added just the dogs from the Thanksgiving Boost digi so that the dogs looked like they were working together to decorate the tree. 🙂 Then I had fun embellishing the tree with flat back pearls, gold sequins and a gold glittery hand cut star.
The second card I made with the Christmas tree that was die cut out of the first. I glittered it up using Folk Art Extreme Glitter paint in hologram and embellished it with clear rhinestones and silver sequins of different sizes. I added glitz Recollections glitter glue to the centers of all the sequins to cover up the little holes and add more sparkle! Again I used the dogs from the digi to add a little furry fun.
These cards are being entered into the following challenges:
