Crazy Dog Christmas


I'm still having fun playing with the Tim Holtz crazy dog and accessory stamp sets, and this time I made a snarky Christmas card. The dog looks grumpy, so I added a grumpy sentiment with a Crafters Companion Bah Humbug die. I lightly colored the B.A.H. with pastel green to match the colors in the image panel. The background dsp is SU! and the minty green dsp was a snippet from my stash. I colored the dog with Copics, and added some liquid applique to the furry portions of his Santa hat.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

May Rudolph Days - make a Christmas card

CHNC #335 - make a Christmas card

CHNC challenge Extra for May 2017 - make a Christmas card



Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great start to a fantastic weekend!

This is a great image of the grumpy dog wearing a Santa hat. You chose the backing papers well too, they look great and so does the sentiment die.

Ah ah ah! :D Very fun card, and just LOVE how the green design on the red patterned paper matches wonderfully with the pon-pon on "Santa" hat!! The same shape! :D Such brilliant choice! The hat looks so dimensional, too, you always put very interesting details on your cards! Great work!

What a fabulous card, love the grumpy dog and the sentiment is perfect, a brilliant card for my Hubby, if it was up to him we wouldn't do Christmas, but in all fairness I think it is because his Birthday is Christmas Day, but you would think it was a time for a double celebration!!!
