Hi there 🙂 Every year, I make a card for my sister who loves Scottie dogs that features….well, a Scottie Dog, of course!! For this year, I downloaded a free silhouette of a Scottie, then merged a poinsettia image from Ike’s Art onto it. I colored the flowers up with my Copics, then fussy cut it out. I used this cool sketch from Cheerful Sketches for my layout, and flipped it around.
I cut the base with an octagon shaped die (didn’t have a hexagon, so….next best thing!) out of red card stock. Every Scottie needs some plaid somewhere, so the strips in the background had to be that print. To back the image, I die cut a pretty rectangle, then layered things up, adding a stamped sentiment strip. For the decorations, I die cut some poinsettias, and added a tiny bit of gold glitter for the centres. I’m loving how this turned out, with the very traditional colors, and the unexpected shape 🙂
