I had so much fun making those doggy Christmas cards yesterday that I decided to keep the fun going and make a couple more!
For the first card, I used the Diemond Dies Pine Tree Die Set (these trees are a little more irregular and thinner than the Christmas tree dies by Diemond Dies) to make a kind of simplified outdoor forest scene. I inked the edges of the die cut trees with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in peacock feathers and decided to decorate the largest of them in the center with clear rhinestones and white and silver sequins of different sizes. I used Recollections glitz glitter glue in the centers of the sequins to cover up the holes and added a smattering of glitter glue dots on the trees for a little added sparkle. To add even more shimmer, I also colored in some of the circles on the patterned paper I used with a clear star Sakura Gelly Roll pen. To ground the trees and the dogs, I used a Copic C1 marker to add some shadow and a reference to a snowy ground.
Like my cards from yesterday, I also fussy cut the little dogs from my free digi, “Thanksgiving Boost,” and added them to one side of the largest tree. However, this time, I wanted to tell a different story. If you’ll notice, there are some rhinestones and sequins on the ground. These mischievous, naughty dogs are knocking off ornies from the tree! LOL The sentiment, which is from the C.C. Designs “Snarky Christmas” stamp set, says “Dear Santa, define naughty….”

For the second card, I used the same dogs but had them working together to peer through a cut out to gaze wistfully at a Christmas wreath made of doggy bones. I made the wreath using a Marvy Uchida dog bone punch and lots of little scraps from my scrap box. To give it a finished look, I covered all the bones with Glossy Accents and topped the wreath with a teeny tiny red satin bow (which I made using the Craft-Dee BowZ tool–oh my gosh this tool is amazing. I thought I was pretty good at making bows by hand, but this tool eliminates all the fussing and guess work!). I wrapped some green and white bakers twine around to give the Rottweiler something to “stand” on. I used another sentiment from the Snarky Christmas set, but this one sweetly just says what I image that Chihuahua is thinking, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” as he peeks in and sees that amazing dog bone wreath. 🙂
