The Christmas Scottie Bundle (stamps and punch) were used to create this quick and easy card. But since I’m the Mom of two adorable Westies – Maezie and Mackenzie – and both Scotties and Westies are similar in size and build, I’m calling the dog on this card a Westie!
I started off with a card base in Blackberry Bliss (such a rich color and one of my favorites) and added two Petal Pink panels that were embossed using the snowflake pattern from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders. Before these panels were adhered, I dusted Wink of Stella on all of the raised portion of the embossed panels. We’re going for lots of sparkle on this card!
The panels were adhered to the card front and I left a 1/2″ space between the thin panel and the larger panel. Glittered Organdy Ribbon was added in the Blackberry Bliss strip between the two panels and secured using Tear & Tape, then a second length of ribbon was used to tie a bow and the bow was added to the center using a Mini Glue Dot.
Two white squares were stamped then matted to squares of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. The first white square was stamped using the plaid stamp from the Christmas Scotties Stamp Set and stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink. The second white square was stamped with the “Merry Christmas” sentiment and I added snowflakes stamped in Petal Pink ink on opposite corners of the square.
The punch was used to punch out the dog in white and a bow in Petal Pink. The bow was adhered to the dog, and the dog was added to the plaid stamped square. The squares were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
An additional sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink on the inside panel, as well as snowflakes stamped in Petal Pink. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card. The envelope was decorated with Petal Pink snowflakes both front and back.
I just love the white dog (Westie) against the Blackberry Bliss plaid and all of the fun sparkle on this card!
Here’s my inspiration for today’s card! Don’t they look like bookends?
