Husky and The Tree


It's Anja here. Today I have a card with the new Dakota the Husky design. Such a cute die, only available in The Scrapping Cottage store. And I decided to combine it with the Christmas tree.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Dakota The Husky, Handmade Twig Tree, Happy Holidays Greeting),
- Distress Inks (Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Pine Needles, Fired Brick, Spun Sugar, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye, Old Paper),
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts and background (12,5x12,5 cm),
- patterned paper for the sentiment and background (14x14 cm),
- white and brown foam,
- black pen,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the lovely husky. I used black pen for the eyes and make up applicator for the chicks.

Then I cut and colored all the pieces for the tree.

I also used colored foam to cut the husky and the base of the tree and then later the greeting. I used the foam to add some dimension. I glued the colored husky and the tree to the foam.

Then I cut the paper for the background. I used white and patterned paper. Then I colored the edges with Distress Ink.

I cut the sentiment from the patterned paper. I again used Distress Ink around the edges. Then I glued the sentiment on the cut foam.

In the end I just glued everything on the card base and my card was finished.

You can find this lovely Dakota the Husky die in the store. Check it out.

I'm wishing you a lovely Sunday and see you again next week.
