CAS Christmas Scottie Christmas Card FF113

by Joanne James8. July 2022 09:00

Today I have my card for the new challenge over at Festive Friday. 

       

The challenge that we are celebrating this week is 'Global Tiger Day' which is on 29th July. Remember the fun thing is that at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion; your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. This week I resisted the urge to use up some retired 'In The Wild' paper (which amongst other animals features tigers) and instead used frame, fur and black and broke open a new stamp set and went with a clean and simple card for Christmas - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Is this Christmas Scottie not the cutest?! I added a Real Red stamped grid patterned background (perfect for the challenge over at Addicted to CAS this week) and a sentiment from the Christmas Scotties stamp set to the front of my card, and used my scoreboard to add a simple scored frame border to my panel. Then I used the Scottie Dog Punch (yes, there is a punch!) to punch a dog out of (retired) black glimmer paper as I wanted to give his fur some texture and added a festive red bow (cut from retired red velvet paper) and a googly eye, then popped him onto my card using dimensionals.

I think the addition of some different textures for the punched element adds lots of interest to an otherwise clean and simple card:

I added a 'furry' themed sentiment to the inside, along with a stamped Scottie for a little extra decoration, this time with a grid-stamped bow. What a dapper chap! 

I'm not a big animal lover, but this Scottie dog has totally won me over - I think he's so cute! You will be seeing lots more of him in the coming months I'm sure. 

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day; I will be aiming to catch up with the housework having been out and about on my travels in recent weeks, hopefully after a lie-in following my 1.30am alarm call to get the youngest of the James Juniors to school in time to catch his bus to the airport for his school trip to Munich. This could be a long day! I'll be back on Sunday with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Now that is one cute card! What a neat way to use the glitter paper and it looks great on the plaid background.
