LOTV Christmas Puppy



Happy Thursday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a magnificent week! We are having extremely HOT weather here in the NC mountains...but no complaints yet...lol...as I remember the snow and ice and cold and no electricity last winter!!

My card today uses one of the cutest stamps from the Latest Stamp Launch at LOTV which includes 21 darling Christmas/holiday images! And it won't be long until the next Christmas Launch. You can see the upcoming collection in the catalog on the LOTV site. This image is Christmas Puppy and he looks like he is in doggie heaven, sitting on all of the cushions with bright packages all around him! Because the image is so colorful I decided to use only one layer of a very simple patterned paper. He was colored with Copics, adding a bit of Glamour Dust to his Santa cap. I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting; the DP is from the Polar Expressions Collection by Imaginisce; and all panels are machine stitched. I used a small snowflake ornament to back the double matted sentiment from the Christmas Circular Sentiments set. To finish the front I added some polka dot satin ribbon tied across the corners, and a few red pearls.



The inside is very simple--on the first panel I added a large snowflake ornament with a knotted ribbon, and smaller snowflake ornaments to anchor the jotting panel.

Thank you so very much for dropping by today and I hope you will let me know what you think of this little puppy card. If you haven't visited the LOTV site to see the cute new stamps, you are in for a real treat. Have a fun rest of the week and come back real soon! Sending a big hug your way!!

Auntie Em said...

Your card is so cute and festive! I love the pretty colours and the way you tied the snowflake on the inside with the simple bow. It reminds me of our little dog we had years ago. He would sit under the tree when as soon as we put it up. Not sure if he liked the decorations or was hoping Santa would bring some treats again!
Thanks for sharing! :)

Auntie Em said...

Sweet card! I love the pretty colours and the sweet little image.
