Heinz 57 Mutt Christmas Card

As many of you may tell, I have fallen in love with a little dog die and have been using it a lot on my cards for Christmas. This is another version using that dog as well as some stamps and other dies to create a fun card design.

My basic card is made of light blue card stock. And, on that base is what I built my little scene. The tree is a stamped one from Heartfelt Creations and it was also die cut using a Heartfelt Creations die. That was placed in the background.

Next I added some die cut gifts beneath the tree and then the dog die was added. As you can tell my dog die is a mutt style as he has different colors to make him look more like a Heinz breed. That is mostly what kind of dogs we have owned so that was why I did him that way. I also placed a gift in front of the mutt too.

The last steps were to add my die cut sentiment using red glitter paper, a star and some red rhinestones to the tree for ornaments. I also added a rhinestone collar to the mutt.
