Fleas Navidad

Hey crafty friends - I'm here with a punny doggy take on Feliz Navidad (Spanish for Merry Christmas) for the February CAS Christmas Challenge. You'd think, me being a cat person, that I'd be making a cat card. Oh well, a doggy set was still on the table from a previous card...

Supplies: Paper - Neenah white;
Paper Studio red A2 card & glitter cardstock;
Anchor Paper silver
Stamps - Inky Antics Punny Christmas Pups
Dies - A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop;
Tim Holtz ATC (retired)
Other - washi from a My Monthly Hero kit;
Copic Markers and black pencil

I stamped the doggy image and colored it with Copics, shading with a black pencil. When I went to die cut it, my rectangles were all a bit longer than the image - great, looks like a polaroid! I went with it. Added another rectangle behind for some interest and a piece of washi. Wanted to reinforce the photo idea so added some photo corners from the Tim Holtz ATC die. As I was adding them, a glue blob happened - oh no! So I had to artfully cover it up with a little starburst from a previous project. Done!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty day!!

Oh my gosh ... this is such a cute card Linda! I LOVE the polaroid design. Your colouring with copics is amazing. I love how you've added so much texture with the markers! The glittery photo corners add sparkle and that lovely gold star/snowflake looks like it was meant to be ... happy accident! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!
