Christmas Hound and Friend

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

It is Pam sharing with you on the blog today!

Our new release for Christmas is available for purchase today!!  It has 40 darling dies that would make gorgeous cards, gift tags, banner or toppers for a bag.  In this release there is everything from farm animals to beautiful Navitiy Scenes.   Today, I am using the Holiday Hound Dog.

My card was inspired by a fun and playful design by Meghan Kennihan.  I just loved the sketch she created so I had to give it a try.  Thanks for the wonderful idea Meghan.  

Design Steps:
1. Start out with a red slimline card base 8 3/4 x 3 3/4.  Next use the Random Circle Slimline die and cut it out of white card stock.  Cut a piece of blue card stock 8 1/2 x 3 1/2.  Cut a piece of red card stock 3 x 4 1/3 and a piece of striped DP 2 3/4 x 3 3/4.  Glue the blue to the red card front, next glue the white random  circle piece to the blue and last mount the striped DP to the red and glue to the card front at an angle as shown
2.  Cut out a white circle using the Crossed Stitched Circle die second from the largest and a red circle cut with the second from the largest Pierced Circle die.  Glue together and then to the card front
3.  Using the Holiday Hound Dog die cut him out of brown, blue, green, red, black, tan and white.  Shade the dog and assemble

4.  Using the Moose and Tree die cut out the tree in green and the trunk in dark brown.  Assemble and glue to the card front as shown.  The little owl is from the die Snowman w/Woodsy Friends

5.  Pop up the dog using dimensionals add the little bulbs on the tree and coat them with glossy accents.  Add the sentiment and your card is complete
