I hope you all have had a wonderful festive season so far, mine certainly has been!
The card I am sharing with you today is one I created for my brother-in-law Willy (his birthday was the 19th) with the Ready for Christmas Bundle. I only used the dog, table and presents stamps and coordinating dies. Just because it is a Christmas set doesn’t mean you need to put it away, pull out the different elements from your sets to use them year round like I did!
In a previous post I had mentioned that I was planning on creating a card for Willy using this stamp set as he and my sister Anne had a little red miniature Dachshund Greta.
I think I did a pretty good job of colouring the little dog so she looks like Greta. I first coloured her in with my Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend marker, then went over it with my Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend marker to blend the colour down to a more muted orange colour.
I gave the background of my card a light watercolour wash to simulate the ground and wall. I didn’t want my dog and table to be just floating, I am a little weird that way, I need to ground things wherever I can.
The sentiment on my card is from the stamp set Happy Wishes and from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Brochure that starts on January 3, 2018.
Willy loved the card, that made me one happy stamper!
