Just for You

I have a Christmas card to share today...featuring an adorable puppy stamp called 'Just for You' from the 'Strawberry Kisses' collection by Crafter's Companion. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, coloured it using watercolor pencils, then carefully cut around the edge of the image. I used lots of snippets of papers from the 'Christmas Cheer' pad by Lily Bee Design...sticking the little strips on to a snippet of kraft card, then trimming the edges to a neat rectangle. I then simply added the background panel to an A6 kraft card blank, then added the puppy image on top using 3D foam pads.

Challenges for this card:

Aww that’s adorable Helen. Great use of your snippets too.

Hope you enjoyed some of Carol’s almond biscuits with a coffee up in the Playground treehouse earlier.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
