Scotty Christmas

Hi 🙂 Every year, I make a Christmas card for my sister that features a Scottie dog <3 This one took forever and a day to get to her, and when it arrived, it was in a bag, because the envelope and card had been badly ripped by the sorting machines 🙁 I figured I’d post it, so she could see what it was supposed to look like!! I saw an I-Crafter die set used on a card in one of my Facebook groups, and went on the search for it, as it was perfect (2 pups with a bow and a little sentiment). I cut the little guy out from a scrap piece of black. I arranged him jumping up on a simple Christmas sentiment. Of course I had to use plaid for background, because…well….Scottie!! I cut a top border, then placed a string of lights that was cut with the coolest Joycraft die set. Then comes the fun…..a little secret of mine is that I cannot seem to throw out even the smallest of glitter paper scraps!! Some are so ridiculously tiny, that I get tempted!! Well, I put those teeny pieces to good use with this card!!! I cut the light bulbs out of some different color sparkle pieces, and also added a sparkly red bow to the pup. A bigger piece (maybe 3/4″ x 2″, lol) was used to cut the letters out to inlay the sentiment die.

I’d like to enter this in the following:

  1. A lovely card Susan! A friend sent me a photo of how her card from me arrived – it looked as if two dogs had been fighting over it, sigh. That must have been a large card you made if you used the sentiment die I’m thinking of – great ides to pair the Scottie Dog with what we in the UK call tartan. Love the string of lights sparkling as well!

  2. Wonderful Scottie dog card. Such a shame the sorting machines ate it up. Good job you took a photo of it prior to posting.

  3. Completely adorable and I would have been disappointed if you didn’t include the tartan background paper 🙂 Lovely layout too! So glad you joined us at Winter Wonderland!
