Deck the Halls

Hello, friends!  It's Andrea back with you again.  Well, I am in full-on Christmas-card-making mode, and today's inspiration is brought to you by the adorable Happy Pawlidays set from MFT Stamps.  I just love these little doggies so much!

Well, this poor pup looks like he got himself into a pickle, doesn't he?  He is just so darn cute though!  I stamped him and the tree with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics.  After cutting them out, I added some highlights with a white gel pen (No surprise there, right?) and some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella.

I die-cut some Bristol Smooth paper with Waffle Flower Crafts' Lacy Layers die and then taped the two pieces together on the back.  Using my MISTI, I stamped that beautiful sentiment from MFT Stamps' Handwritten Holiday with Versamark and heat-embossed it in white.  After ink-blending the panel with Salty Ocean Distress Ink, I flicked on some water and blotted it with a towel.

I adhered the frame to a white card and popped up the center with foam tape.  After gluing the tree, I also popped up that cute pup and added some Glossy Accents to his nose.  To finish the card, I added a bunch of Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping by!
