Traditional Colors Christmas Card

I am again working with that darling doggy die and this time I created a card using it. I also tried to stick with mostly traditional Christmas colors and I must say I am really happy how this turned out.

The doggy was cut out of black card stock. I was going to piece it but when I laid it on the white card front panel I thought it looked great that way. I also die cut several gifts out and two of them were layered onto white card stock. My tree die was cut from Gina K. Designs pattern paper that I thought looked like it had lights all over it. I then added a garland made from very narrow ribbon and a star snowflake which was cut from gold glitter paper. The ribbon was also added to the doggy for a collar and for the metal tag I simply punched out a circle from the glitter paper. The last thing I did before adding this panel to a red card base was to stamp the nice big sentiment which is from Gina K. Designs.

Supplies used:
Card stock, Red Velvet ink and pattern paper as well as the sentiment stamp from Gina K. Designs
Scor Pal to crease the card in the center
Scor Tape to add the die cut tree
2-way glue to add dies
Crafters Companion glue pen to add the ribbon
Old 1/8 inch punch for dog tag

Dies used are the following:
Cheery Lynn Designs-Funny Dog CAFNN-2; Whimsical Christmas B849
Die-Namics MFT-788 Trim the Tree
CAS-UAL FRIDAYS-Fri-Dies Funky Flakes

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Christmas Critters
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Ribbon! Ribbon! Who's Got The Ribbon!
Double D Challenges-Traditional Christmas Colors
Crop Stop Linky Party #22-Anything Goes

Well, no rain or snow yet but apparently it will begin after 5 o'clock this afternoon and go into Friday. They predict 4-8 inches for our area but it will start with rain first so it could get a bit slippery. So anyone who is out and about in this type of weather please take care and drive and walk safely.

Well, I am warning you that I won't be posting as often as I will be extra busy with cleaning for the Thanksgiving holiday and weekend. If I need a break I might do a card occasionally. I have a few done ahead of time so if nothing else I might just post one of those designs. In the meantime, thanks for coming and commenting and I hope you are having a great week.

God bless,
