Hello friends! It's Ashley with a new guest post for you all today! I completely fell in love with the belly rubs sentiment from Christmas Puppies and had to use it for a card! One of my dogs can never get enough belly rubs, so it makes me think of her!
I started by stamping the puppy and hat from Christmas Puppies on white cardstock with black Copic friendly ink. I stamped the hat first, then masked it before stamping the puppy so I could keep it all one layer. I colored the image with Copics and added a few highlights with a white gel pen. I stamped my belly rubs sentiment underneath with red and green inks for an extra Christmasy feel. I stamped the holly leaves with black so I could color them with green Copics to match the green on my puppy image.
I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock, so that my colored piece was 5 1/2" x 3 1/4". I wrapped some twine around the bottom three times and tied a tiny bow. I found a cute holly print patterned paper in my stash that matched the holly on my sentiment and cut it to A2 size. I added my stamped piece to the top with foam tape to keep the twine in place and to prevent wrinkles.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
