I put the image of the Christmas card on Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock. I used simple masking and added the image of the cute little dog. Then I added the words "Happy Christmas" from the Strawberry Kisses set of the same name.
I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color these images. Here's what I used ...
Dog: dog's fur - GB1, GB2; dog's eye - GB8, GB10; bottom of one paw - GB8; dog's nose - IG8, IG10; dog's collar, heart on collar, band around head - CR9, DR2; antlers - TN1
Christmas card - background - TB3; tree - JG1; tree trunk - EB7; heart CR9; base for tree TB9
"Happy Christmas" - JG1, JG2
I used a gold gel pen for the loop between the collar and heart tag. And I used one last Spectrum Noir pen, GG1, for the shadow around the dog.
The base of the card started out as a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of green card stock. I folded this in half and this card has a side fold. On top of this, I attached a 3 7/8 x 4 7/8 piece of blue card stock. (I picked this to match the color of the card in the image.) I attached it 1/8" in from the left, and 1/8" down from the top of the card base.
On top of the blue card stock, I attached a 3 5/8" x 4 5/8" piece of red card stock. I positioned it approximately 1/4" in from the left, and 1/4" down from the top of the card base.
I trimmed the white card stock down to 3 1/2" x 4 1/2". I then attached it to the center of the red card stock. All of the attaching was done with the Extra Strong Permanent Tape Runner.
To finish off this card, I added some gemstones in the lower portion of the front of the card. Please refer to photo for placement.
Hope you enjoyed this card. I enjoyed making it.
Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
