Winter Ready Cat and Dog

Doesn't your furry friend celebrate the holidays too?  Do they have their own stocking hung to get treats from Santa?  Well I know mine do.  They are such apart of the family.  We need to give them treats too.

What about a warm scarf or a winter knit hat?  Fido loves to roll in the snow and he needs to be warm too!


When I first saw the Snowman Embellishment kit, I immediately thought of these cards.  Aren't they fun!?!  The kit has little felt hats and scarfs, mittens too. 

Although, I think if I would put a scarf around my Smokey's neck, he would freak out.  But thought it there... I think it would make a real cute picture. 

The card base is Cherry Cobble card stock (standard 8-1/5 x 5-/12)

The dotted foil paper, red star strip, and the banner die are all from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  This product medley has everything that you need (except ink and adhesive).  Great product to produce a lot of great cards.  

Dotted Foil is cut to 5-3/8 x 4-1/8"

Red star strip is 4-1/8 x 2"

I punched a cat and dog out of Cherry Cobbler card stock too, and adhered slightly off set so they stand out a little.  

Just having some fun on these.  Hope you liked.  

You can also catch my video and see them being made from Week 4 of my 12 Weeks of Christmas Facebook Live videos.

Black Ice Technique

Have you had a chance to see the "Natures Beauty" stamp set?  I have posted about it before.  Check it out HERE and see what Stampin' Up! does when you purchase the set.  

Here's a technique that just never gets old to me.  And I just love a black and white card. 


Have you tried the Black Ice Technique?  It's been around for a little while but I had some fellow card makers ask how it was done.  I included it on my Facebook Live - 12 Weeks of Christmas video.  So take a look to see how I did it. 

Basic Black:  card base (8-1/2 x 5-1/2) and the Mat piece is (4-1/4 x 3-1/2).

Silver Foil:    5-3/8 x 4-1/8 and the Deer/Trees and stamped on silver foil that is 3-3/4 x 3

Whisper White:  mat is 4 x 3-1/4

Make sure you use Black Stazon Ink or permanent black ink to make this technique work well.

Need An All-Occassion Card?

I have a little different card project for you today.  I used a piece of the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper as the card opening.  It is matted onto Copper Foil and Pretty Peacock card stock. I chose to leave the front blank and use as a simple note card style.  Or you can add a banner or label with a sentiment.  This is a great way to use up some of that Designer Series paper you may have been holding on to. 


Back piece:  Pretty Peacock card stock cut 5-1/2 by 4-1/4

Mat:  Copper Foil cut 5-1/3 x 4-1/8"

DSP:  Come To Gather Designer Series Paper cut 10 x 3-3/4 and scored in half at 5"

Inside:  Whisper White card stock cut at 3-1/2 x 4-3/4
